Developing a Writing Process

In case you missed the newsletter, seventh graders are working on visualizing and describing the writing process they use to create a final, publishable piece of writing. I want students to internalize the writing process, so they use it for the rest of their lives, not just in seventh grade. We started with some vocabulary that writers use, then experienced how each part works when students created their pencil holders, and now they are synthesizing the information into their very own, to be used all year, shared with parents & peers, and hopefully retained on all future writing experiences. This project is due on Friday, October 25.
