Overview

As classrooms become more and more diverse, teachers are faced with the challenge of meeting the needs of all their students—both English-speaking students and English Language Learners. Teaching writing is especially challenging in these mixed-language classrooms. In this book, a national literacy leader offers a variety of techniques for teaching writing that will motivate all students, while also providing ELLs with the supports they need. The techniques include using patterns—song, rhymes, and playground games; short forms, such as slogans and mottos; frames for scaffolding standard writing forms like letters and invitations; and highly structured genres, such as fairy tales and legends. These engaging structured writing experiences will help all students develop the skills they need to write with confidence. For use with Grades K–5.
