Freewriting with Purpose: Simple Classroom Techniques to Help Students Make Connections, Think Critically, and Construct Meaning

Format: Paperback
Status: Available
Authentic Canadian Content

Simple classroom techniques for to help students make connections, think critically, and construct meaning 

In freewriting, we write continuously: we begin with a prompt and keep our pen or pencil moving throughout the entire duration. We do not stop to question or censor ourselves; we do not concern ourselves with spelling, punctuation, capitalization, or grammar; we do not let critical thoughts creep into our freewriting time. This book shows teachers how to use freewriting to help kids write well and more, regardless of grade level, subject, time of day, or time of year. It is not a difficult process to implement and yet it makes a significant difference in teacher attitudes, student confidence, and, ultimately, student writing abilities.
