TI-AIE: Developing and monitoring writing

What this unit is about

This unit is about strategies you can use to encourage writing in English in your classroom. The main focus is on supporting your students in composition and drafting. Of course, spelling, handwriting and punctuation are also important. But when students are drafting and composing their ideas of what to write about, they will be practising the mechanical skills at the same time.

Writing is meant to be read, so a focus on writing will always integrate a focus on reading. When you and your students talk about writing, you also develop their oral language skills.
