Full Description

Guided Writing is your handbook for the newest, most effective way to move students into independent writing. Lori Oczkus provides everything you need to support children in the fledgling phase between carefully modeled group writing and their first solo pieces. Guided Writing explains how to observe which stage of writing development your writers are in, how to challenge them to stretch their writing into the next developmental phase, and how to provide specific teaching that helps them achieve goals they can’t reach alone.
 
Guided Writing includes motivational and instructional ideas; organizational and classroom management principles for whole class, peer group, or teacher-led small group instruction; graphic organizers; and techniques for any literacy classroom as well as ready-to-use, engaging, scaffolded lessons across several commonly taught genres:
  • poetry
  • personal narrative
  • patterned writing
  • expository writing.
This comprehensive resource is linked to the widely used six-traits model of instruction and includes dozens of examples of student work, reproducible worksheets, student-friendly activities, teacher-friendly assessment rubrics, and creative ways for students to share their writing—absolutely everything you need to make guided writing your favorite and most effective instructional method.
 
Discover Guided Writing for yourself. See the powerful effect smart, scaffolded instruction can have on your writers, and watch them make a smooth transition to independent writing with confidence and competence.
