Structures and Strategies for Writing Success

Professional Growth Opportunities

The aim of K-12 English language arts curricula is to “help students understand and appreciate language and to use it confidently and competently in a variety of situations” (Saskatchewan Ministry of Education). When teaching students how to write, this means providing frequent opportunities for writing across the many modes or genres with sufficient scaffolds to support student success and engage their interests.  In order to do this well, students need to be equipped with a variety of strategies which support their decision-making as a writer. This workshop will support teachers in using structures and strategies to teach writing through a variety of modes or genres including the skills involved in writing longer texts through digging deeper into the curriculum and writing process.

Participants will:

  • Identify how to use before, during and after strategies as scaffolds in supporting the writing process.
  • Develop strategies for supporting students’ use of self-assessment and goal setting.
  • Identify the criteria for quality writing at the elementary level across the modes of genres of writing.
  • Examine the curricular outcomes and criteria for success in writing at each grade level.
