Writing Situation
Thirty years ago, cell phones were an uncommon piece of technology. In today's world, cell phones are a primary means of communication. However, some parents do not allow their teens to have cell phones. Teens who have phones would not think of leaving their house without their phone. Sometimes it seems as if parents don't understand all the advantages of their children having a phone.

Directions for Writing
Write an article for a teen magazine explaining why teens need to own cell phones. Be sure to include specific facts and details to support your writing.

CCGPS Writing:
Framework for Integrating
Writer's Workshop and "SICO" Writing

Presenters: Susan Robinson and Stacey Wright
Instructional Coaches for Carroll County Schools

From: 6th Grade CCGPS ELA Unit 3
Thinking Maps may be developed earlier in the unit and scaffolded for differentiation
Yeah, but...
Isn't this just "teaching the test?"
Isn't this a formulaic way of writing?
Is there any data to back up this process?
Doesn't it take a long time to implement?
will it work with any writing prompt or any writing genre?
What about Thinking Maps? (Backward Design)

BSMS - 2 years implementation (One 7th grade teacher and 8th grade only; not school-wide) 13% increase in the first year
CMS - 2 years implementation (School-wide Focus including co-taught classes) 21% increase over 2 years
VRMS - 1 year implementation (Two out of three 8th grade teachers; not school-wide) 4% increase
TES - Mid-October - March implementation (One 4th and One 5th grade teacher) 9% increase
* Students may use the rubric as they write in the beginning of the year. Remove this piece mid-way through the year and only use for assessment.
word choice * voice * sentence fluency
