What is your advice about? Teaching Writing

  1. Write a model letter(eg) yourself that hits the marks (on the rare occasion you can find a model that fits EXACTLY what you want, feel free to use that).
  2. They pick it apart (paragraph/sentence structures, content, vocab etc)
  3. They plan their own on a similar topic in a similar way to how they picked it apart (same criteria)
  4. They write independently with you reminding them of good vocab etc
  5. They peer assess with a scaffolded checklist of the success criteria and then act upon by tweaking/redraft.
