Effective Grading Practices
Learn how to use the Discourse and Writing Cycle, a highly effective instructional technique that takes the guessing out of the process of teaching writing across different subject areas in grades 4–12. The authors show content area teachers how the process of structured classroom discussion on a carefully chosen text, followed by writing, works in their grades—from upper elementary through high school classes in English language arts, math, science, and social studies—and provide clear models for implementation. Classroom examples and sample lessons make it easier for you to inspire students to become confident and competent writers.
