In this session, participants continue to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to apply the writing process to genre-specific writing instruction. Phases of genre-specific writing instruction, such as learning about genre, evaluating genre, and writing genre, will be discussed. Because students who are knowledgeable about text structure recall and write text better than others who aren’t, this session will highlight the importance of making text structure for the genres of narrative, informational/explanatory, and opinion/argumentative writing visually explicit by using beginning-middle-end frames.

Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the phases of genre-specific writing instruction
  • Prepare visual scaffolds and “think-alouds” for genre-specific writing instruction
  • Demonstrate the use of text structure to teach narrative, informational/explanatory, and opinion/argumentative writing
