What is Writer's Workshop?
Writer's Workshop provides students with a supportive environment that involves them in authentic writing experiences that focus on the strengths and needs of each individual student. Writer's Workshop can build students' fluency in writing through continuous, repeated exposure to the process of writing. In Writer's Workshop, second grade students are exposed to the organization and thought required to create a story or write about a favorite topic and develop it into an understandable narrative with a focus.
Units of Study:
Lessons from the Masters (Small moment narratives), Informational Writing, Writing Gripping Fictional Stories, Poetry, Writing About Reading, Lab Reports and Science Books
Unit rubrics are used to assess students abilities to independently and successfully complete different genres of writing. Each rubric is based on Common Core standards in Language/ Writing. The rubrics used for Writing Workshop come directly from Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project. Our goal is to have all students perform in the 3 (Meeting) column.
