Reflection: Lesson Planning Organizing the Ideas: Day 1 of 2 - Section 1: Preview


According to Common Core Standards in order for students to build a foundation for college and career readiness, students must produce numerous writing pieces over short and extended time frames throughout the year.  Which is why I have my students produce a quick journal write everyday.  When students write in their journals about the lesson or activity they just finished it helps them to apply, analyze, synthesize, and/or evaluate what they just practiced.

It also demystifies/normalizes the writing process and makes it less formidable of a task for my young students.

I also dedicate a structured block of time to teach writing, where I model and teach how to organize and develop ideas, and how to write those ideas. Even though it can seem tedious, I have always felt that the writing block is one of the most important times we have during the day.

Combining reading with writing is an excellent tool for teaching writing because reading is where the words are.
