DAY 11: 30-Day Blogging Challenge For Teachers

My favorite part of the school day is composing time of writer’s workshop. I love writing because it allows students to be creative. It’s a time that students are expressing their own thoughts and ideas. It’s an opportunity for students to brainstorm, research, write, revise, collaborate, blog, publish, podcast, and/or self-asses. Students can become not only the author’s of their own writing, but authors of how they learn, grow, and apply the life skill of writing!

The structure of writer’s workshop allows for differentiation in how students are learning, creating, and sharing their work. It also allows the teacher to differentiate instruction as well, providing time to work individually with a student, in a small group, or with the entire class based on student needs. It also provides the opportunity to pull in professional, exemplar, and peer writing examples (and advice) through use of mentor texts, Google Hangouts with authors, and sharing/reflection.
