Watch struggling writers gain confidence and strong writers soar with the practical help of this WeE-book™ . . .Three Keys to Teaching Writing By Danielle Olander
Some children are born with an ability to write that is nurtured and encouraged. Many more children, however, have a great reluctance to write. As an instructor with the Institute for Excellence in Writing, Danielle gives us a close look into her homeschool classes, sharing the instruction, charts, models, and tools that allow students to feel confident about and even love writing.
In the pages of this WeE-book™, you’ll find sensible, proficient support from a writing expert:
- Start With a Good Source of Information—Teach your children how to draw from text sources. Help them with choosing topics, note taking, using outlines, writing sentences, and creating original paragraphs.
- Expose Students to Many Models of Writing—Included are four Models of Writing charts to get you going.
- Require Specific Writing Components—Using a mastery approach, you can help your students mine the wealth of words in their language. As they practice these techniques, they’ll begin to use them with ease and grace.
- Clearly Define Expectations—Make the often difficult process of evaluating so much easier: Communicate through child assignment checklists. Which elements should you include?
- The Reachable Goal: Confident Writers—Successful writing teachers know how to train students in three skill areas, helping to develop the students’ writing ability without discouraging them. Become one of those teachers!
