Like all curricula battling for instructional time, writing often doesn’t emerge as a priority—until standardized test results reveal that there is a problem. When that happens, it’s all hands on deck. But the momentum often stalls with the question: Where should we start?
The answer isn’t found in purchasing another boxed writing program or administering more writing assessments. Instead, research clearly reveals that student writing improves with effective writing instruction. But addressing what constitutes “effective” instruction is the next challenge.
During this practical and engaging edWeb Podcast, author and educator Kristina Smekens describes the seven factors that must be addressed when embarking on any school or district writing initiative. She provides evidence as to why these components are necessary and how they impact student writing achievement.
This edWeb Podcast is for any K-12 district or school administrator, instructional coach, or teacher leader who is seeking clarity on how to improve writing instruction and ultimately student achievement.Smekens Education Solutions
