I got pointed to the Michigan Dept. of Education’s Website by Deb earlier this week. While I was there I found an interesting document about Writing Across the Curriculum in Language Arts. If this is something you’re interested in trying to implement, or are looking for more ideas about how to make writing a priority in other subject areas, then this document is worth a read!
BONUS: Towards the end of the document are great checklists for revision, editing, and proofreading, as well as clear questions for kids to use during peer editing.
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).
