Writer's Workshop Sample 1
A note about Spelling: It is always best to try to spell well, however, this isn't important to focus strongly on this until Stage 5 Editing. I often know if I have spelled a word incorrectly but I do not stop my thinking, idea flow or writing to find out. I just circle it, keep going and go back and check later.
Stage 3 Sharing
This a time for you to share your work with a partner. Ask them for feedback about what was good writing and what traits of your writing need improvement. It is also a time for you to listen and provide feedback on their writing. You can also learn and collect ideas from others when you are listening to or reading their piece.
ProDivas is a simple sharing approach, teacher to teacher, for our professional development. We collect and share bite-sized practical ideas. Once you take a bite, you may be self-motivated to eat the whole meal! We aim to find ideas supported by research to then apply for “best practice” but some ideas are too good to miss and are just simple “teacher tips”.
