Writing Strategies Book

Align the goals in Writing Strategies Book to Being a Writer

To help you use her Writing Strategies Book most effectively, Jennifer Serravallo has created a crosswalk between her book and several commonly used writing approaches and programs. If you use The Developmental Studies Center’s Being a Writer, Jen’s guide includes a chart that helps you align the 10 goals in The Writing Strategies Book to the rubrics and conference notes in Being a Writer.

Jen’s hierarchy of 10 writing goals is a great foundation for lesson plans, and it maps onto many of the reflection prompts and questions in the rubrics and conference notes in Being a Writer. Once you’ve assessed your writers, Jen’s goals can help prioritize the work you do with individual students, small groups, or whole groups. You’ll get great ideas for matching strategies to writers’ needs.

Being a Writer has also organized its learning objectives into assessment categories. In this guide, I offer you my best attempt at correlating my goal categories to theirs, so that if you identify from Being a Writer’s rubrics and conferences that a student could use work in a certain category, you’ll be able to easily find strategies in my book to support that student.”
