Writing Skills for Students

Facilitator: Marie S. Bollers

What are some ways to develop collaborative and independent writers
What are some ways to develop collaborative and independent writers?

  • Best practices

Research-based approaches:

  • Vocabulary development and EAL’s

  • Writers’ Workshop & LEA

  • LBD and performance- or project-based learning



From a socio-linguistic perspective: writers?

Language serves two main purposes in any community.


The Power of Language writers?

  • Language as “communicator” – from this perspective any language is “legitimate” if the parties can understand each other.


How would our students’ communications writers?

score if assessed with the HCT writing bands?


  • The Language of Power writers?

  • Language as “social marker” – from this perspective language is a “gate” that allows others in or shuts others out of “the group”.

  • All team members will participate in the activities and do their best to complete any group and individual tasks assigned.

How To Have A Positive Attitude

My Story :

When I was 10 years old, my father taught me how to pray. At first , I was very lazy. I did not want to wake up and pray. One day my mother told me a story about Muslim people who didn't pray and what will happen to them. She also told me what happens to people who pray. I think positive to pray more often.
