Plan Boxes Defined

Kelly asked about plan boxes. Since I happen to have one of my student’s old notebooks at my apartment this evening, I photographed six plan boxes to share with you. You can view them by clicking here (they’re stored on Flickr). I hope that having the visual of some of this student’s plan boxes will give anyone who’s wondering what “plan boxes” are all about a better idea.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).

  1. This is another way of thinking about planning in writing. I am always working on writing with students. I appreciate seeing pictures and reading about ideas. My website has a new writing lesson posted daily that might interest you. I have also study Lucy Calkins work along with many other authors. I am an author and a staff developer. Your website or blog is one of the best I have seen. You inspired me to start one.
