Topic: Interactive Writing

10-second review: Students take turns completing a composition on the whiteboard.

Title: “Interactive writing Beyond the Primary Grades.” H Wall. Reading Teacher (October 2008), 149-152. A publication of the International Reading Association (IRA).

Summary: Demonstrate how to write a composition by having different students begin, continue and conclude the composition on the white board.

Comment: Why didn’t I think of this? It’s one thing to present a model of an expository composition. It’s another to have the entire class of students complete a composition themselves together as a group. Demonstrate the process to the group by having the group construct a composition. A worthwhile idea. RayS.
