Guided Practice: Using Writing to Strengthen Your Reading & Writing Literary Essays, Grades 3 and Up

In an introductory series of 9 video-lessons, students learn a host of engaging and thoughtful ways to jot responses to their fiction reading. Then, in a second series with 10 videos, students take all the writing and thinking about reading they did in the first, and fashion that writing into a well-structured literary essay. As they do this important work, students deepen their understanding of writing literary essays about texts, and all that this process entails.

Full Description

Do your children sometimes struggle to know how to write notebook entries, or jot meaningful sticky notes in response to the fiction they are reading? Does it sometimes seem that they don’t know what teachers really want when they are asked to write about their reading? And does it sometimes seem—even more significantly—that kids don’t have that much to say about their reading?

In an introductory series of 9 video-lessons, TCRWP Staff Developer Hareem Khan coaches kids to learn a host of engaging and thoughtful ways to jot responses to their fiction reading. While this is certainly a course in writing about reading, it is also a course that helps students learn new ways to think about reading.

In the second series of 9 video sessions, Staff Developer Alissa Reicherter helps students take all the writing and thinking about reading they will have done in the first series, and fashion that writing into a well-structured literary essay, learning as they do this about what is required to write a literary essay about any text.

See the Components below for the titles of each video.
