Writing is a complex task requiring many skills. The complexity of the task can be overwhelming for many students and especially those who struggle with learning disorders, executive function challenges and anxiety. Emerging research supports structured and explicit writing instruction to help all students develop effective writing skills. In this session, the speaker will outline a six-step structured writing process that can be used in elementary classrooms to teach students to write across the curriculum. The speaker will also walk participants through the creation of a detailed and differentiated lesson plan.This structured writing procedure helps students develop the foundational thinking and writing skills needed to become successful writers. It addresses metacognitive strategies and the four best practices for teaching elementary education highlighted by a meta-analysis conducted by the Institute of Education Sciences (2012),   Disclaimer: Elements of the Tell me! program, developed by the Centre for Literacy, will be used in this presentation.
