Teaching Adolescent Writers

Learning to Write
Students need to “learn to write” throughout their lives. When they are in elementary school, children learn to encode words, spell, construct sentences, figure out the mechanics of paragraphs, and develop understanding of grammar. As they get older, students refine and expand these skills. This is most commonly accomplished in the English classroom as students complete process writing pieces and teachers comment on successive drafts of students’ writing.
