Implementing the Writing Process

Created by the website, readwritethink, this strategy guide explains the writing process and offers practical methods for applying it in your classroom to help students become proficient writers. It gives a detailed definition of each step of the process; prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, rewriting, publishing, and evaluating. The evaluation portion utilizes peer-editing (with a link to a powerpoint introduction), and an editing checklist. There are also numerous resources and lesson ideas in the teacher resource section at the bottom. Use this guide to define steps of the writing process. The powerpoint is a great way to explain and demonstrate peer editing. The checklist also provides a great tool for kids to self-edit. Toward the bottom you will also find links to an Essay Map for planning an essay (also in a web-based format).
