Transcript of Guided Writing

Guided Writing at KPS How are we catering for the class, groups and individuals in our writing programmes? Modelled writing is when the teacher writes so that the whole class or small group can see each of the words as they are written or can hear the teacher thinking aloud about the process of writing. Shared writing: Supported composition Shared writing is when the teacher acts as a scribe and students collaboratively compose a piece of writing. Guided writing: Participation is based on students’ independent writing. They are grouped according to particular needs to improve their writing. Writing Instruction ... small Looks like / Sounds like:
-small flexible groups.
-fast paced discussion, between 5- 20 minutes.
-flexible groups and depends upon an observed aspect or current needs of the group.
