Writing Standard 10

Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.
  • Analyzing Visual Text
    Students individually consider a visual text and draw conclusions based on what they see. They write about their conclusions and explain the evidence used to make that determination.
  • Cornell Notes
    Students use the Cornell notes tool (developed by Walter Pauk from Cornell University) to do close reading of informational text.
  • Real World Writing: A Strategy for Developing Ideas
    Real-world writing allows students and teachers to connect the dots between writing in the classroom by classifying writing into six areas: Express and Reflect; Inform and Explain; Evaluate and Judge; Inquire and Explore; Analyze and Interpret; Take a Stand/Propose a Solution.
