Teaching Writing as a Process: Put It Into Practice

Put It Into Practice

Create a Handbook

In this ongoing activity, you will collect literacy resources in a Handbook for Effective Literacy Practices to use in your classroom.

Today, you will create a section focused on writing instruction. Include resources you already use, and plan to use in the future. Place these resources in the section for Teaching Writing as a Process. You may want to include:


Do this activity with your colleagues to create a comprehensive collection of resources and instructional plans.

  • the Planning for Writers' Workshop Template developed in Activity 1
  • the list of writing mini-lesson topics created in Activity 2
  • specific lessons in writing you have taught, or you planned in Activity 2
  • graphic organizers for planning and drafting writing in response to reading
  • a list of books for read-aloud to stimulate student writing
  • management procedures for writing time
  • questions to use in teacher-student conferences
  • editing and revision checklists for teachers and students

Submit a copy of your completed Handbook at the end of the workshop series.
