Procedures Curriculum Expectations
Grade 8 - Language
Follow-up Strategy Cautions References To develop students' concept of authorship.
To emphasize that students' ideas and experiences are worthy of preservation and sharing.
To develop collaborative learning abilities and peer editing skills. •Ahead of the presentation, the teacher reminds the class of the rules of the “Author’s Chair”, explaining it takes courage to read one’s own work aloud, and that the class is a professional environment.
Inappropriate comments will not be tolerated.
Facing the audience, an individual reads a personal draft or polished composition
The audience is respectful and accepting of the author's efforts.
At the end of the strategy, allow in-class time for an independent written reflection by those student’s who sat in the “Author’s Chair.”
Allow students who have not yet presented to revise and polish some of their own written work, preparing them for their turn in the “Author’s Chair.”
Writing, (Portfolio) - 4.3 Select pieces of writing that they think reflect their growth and competence as writers and explain the reasons for their choice.
Oral Communication, (Active Listening Strategies) - 1.2 Demonstrate an understanding of appropriate listening behaviour by adapting active listening strategies to suit a wide variety of situations, including work in groups. Model appropriate behavior, questions and comments before allowing students to share. Emphasize that you will not tolerate rudeness or hurtful commentary regarding a student's reading.
For student’s who are shy, it is the teacher’s responsibility to create a positive environment, encouraging all students to be brave and have a turn in the "Author’s Chair." “How to Use the Author's Chair in Classroom Literacy Practices.” | eHow.com Web. 14 Dec 2012. http://www.ehow.com/how_7774196_use-chair-classroom-literacy-practices.html#ixzz2EyfDq16E
