  • “Teaching Elementary Students to be Effective Writers” Reflection

    The authors of “Teaching Elementary Students to be Effective Writers” offer 4 general recommendations for improving writing and rate these recommendations according the level of evidence used to support the recommendations in improving students’ writing. Recommendation 2 (Teach students to use the writing process for a variety of purposes) and Recommend 3 (Teach students to become fluent with handwriting, spelling, sentence construction, typing, and word processing) yield strong and moderate evidence respectively for promoting learning, while Recommendation 1 (Provide daily time for students to write) and Recommendation 4 (Create an engaged community of writers) yield minimal evidence. Using information you know about explicit and systematic instruction, explain why Recommendations 2 and 3 are likely to be more effective that Recommendations 1 and 4. Use specific examples from the recommendations, teaching procedures, and research on teaching writing to support your conclusions.
