SMART RESOURCE | An essential resource for the management of writing groups during a class writing session. The students work independently or within groups to complete a sequence of tasks. The teacher is then free to focus on group writing or teacher conferencing. Included is a list of tasks and an explanation of the Authors Chair activity.
SMART RESOURCE | The resource supports the students completed recount writing; the time when they reflect upon their work. Here are two suggestions for the use of this resource: 1. Students evaluate their writing against the set Self-Reflection success criteria sheet; or 2. Students select the success criteria from the Self-Reflection sheet that they have been focusing on in their writing, record it on the template, and then complete the self-assessment. Finally, the student is asked to think about and record the next step to further improve their play writing. The resource also includes a certificate to celebrate the students work.
