What patterns of writing problems have you seen in your classroom?

What are specific writing areas in need of improvement?
Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)
For the coming school year, academic writing is 1 of the 3 pivotal instructional areas of focus at Kepner. Put another way, all observations from teachers and peers alike (via learning walks, instructional rounds, WDN leadership, etc.) should see evidence of writing on a daily basis. Therefore, everything you are presenting is a SUPPORT for HOW we do this at a high level to best meet the needs of our kids.

WRITING 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 CHANGE
ELL 19% 19% 17% 18% 20% 1%
Non ELL 28% 25% 22% 23% 28% 0%

78% of our students currently lack proficiency in writing.

Did you feel like Jose?

Did you feel successful?
Our vision is to increase student writing achievement through common school-wide instruction in a comprehensive set of writing strategies in support of college and career readiness.
Think Write Share
How would you like to see Kepner students use writing in YOUR classroom?
But I'm a @#$%& Teacher!
Each content area will be able to use the school wide strategies within their own content!
As a teacher leadership team, we have created a year long plan that will coincide with the PLC cycles, to provide teachers and students with common writing strategies to be used school-wide.
Templates and Organizers and Rubrics..............OH MY!
Included within the academic writing cycles is a peer editing focus. This supports LEAP and our school wide focus of collaboration.

PLC Cycles
The expectation is each week's CFA have a written component. The website has tools and strategies to support the HOW!!!!!!!!!
