Writing standards challenge students to produce writing that is based on their reading, rather than as a standalone skill. But simply assigning more writing will not result in more skilled writers. Rather, students need to be carefully taught the conventions and grammar of writing, as well as the kinds of text types they can produce. This session will focus on writing from sources, and how writing stamina and skill can be purposefully built using an instructional framework that ensure students will be able to write like reporters. http://mhreadingwonders.com
