Interactive writing is a dynamic, unscripted instructional method in which the teacher and students work together to construct a meaningful text while simultaneously discussing the details of the writing process.
Interactive Writing Across Grades: A Small Practice with Big Results by Kate Roth and Joan Dabrowski unpacks this powerful strategy step by step and grade by grade. The authors help you figure out where and how interactive writing fits within your literacy framework. The book includes:
• an overview of the interactive writing method and how it fits into your balanced literacy program;
• concrete ways to launch interactive writing to support both process and craft instruction;
• step-by-step guidance to implement the method with students of all ages; and
• real classroom writing from every grade that shows what to expect at each phase of the process.
Discover what makes interactive writing a particularly effective teaching practice that can support both emergent and fluent writers. Preview the full text of Interactive Writing Across Grades now!
