Best Practices – Chapter 3

Filed under: Uncategorized — by dt78830 @ 4:10 am

This chapter was helpful in showing how skills build on each other.  Having the examples of the students’  stories helped you see the different developmental levels.  As you can see teachers should use “developmentally appropriate scaffolding techniques” so children can progress with their writing.

  1. Working with fourth grade and preparing students for the writing test gave me a chance to work with writing in the classroom. I remember how stressful it was so reading this article was helpful. It is hard to know what “developmentally appropriate scaffolding techniques” are if you are not exposed to them in education, so being in this class and reading this chapter made teaching writing not as nerve-racking.

    Dawn, I was so impressed by your multi-genre project! You are incredible and I can’t figure out how you found the time to do that and be a full time teacher as well as a wife! 🙂 Thank you for your insights on our class topics! I wish you luck for the rest of your graduate career.
