  1. A Model For Scaffolded Writing Instruction- IMSCI Nina Jackson, Presenter

  2. What is IMSCI? • IMSCI is research based writing instruction. • IMSCI uses the gradual release of responsibility model to teach writing. • Scaffolds students’ writing ability while allowing you to focus on your content area. • Builds stronger writers • Leads to higher quality student writing

  3. The IMSCI process… • Inquiry- show the students writing • Modeling- model writing a piece • Shared writing-write a piece with the students • Collaborative writing- students write a piece together • Independent writing-students write their own individual piece ( Provide support to the students as necessary. All students will not be on the same step at the same time)

  4. How Can we Implement IMSCI in the Middle School classroom? • Inquiry Examine various pieces of writing in that genre. Analyze the features of the genre, vocabulary used, compare to other types of writing. Evaluate an exemplar. • Modeling— Write a piece in front of the students. (This is a great opportunity to use think a loud)

  5. Implementation Cont. • Shared Writing— Create a piece of writing with the students. Use the text features, and vocabulary identified. • Collaborative Writing–- Students work in pairs to create a piece of writing in that genre.

  6. Implementation Cont. • Independent Writing— Students write their own piece drawing on the previous steps.

  7. What about Graphic organizers, and other Supports? • Use graphic organizers, sentence frames, and word banks as appropriate. • The goal is independent writing…but there’s a process to it.

  8. Can IMSCI Work In the Middle school? • Supports are built in to scaffold independence. • IMSCI—is not limited by genre or content area. • Clear predictable practices and routines lead to increased student success.

  9. Ready? Let’s try it. Inquiry--- Yosoy________ Me gusta leer, cantar, y trabajar en el jardín. No me gusta escuchar la música rap, ni escuchar los excusos. Yo tengo pelo rubio. Yo soy baja, desorganizada. Yo soy creativa, y trabajador. Yo No soy baja, castaña ni artística. Me llamo_______ Whattype of writingisthis?

  10. Modeling… • Now, I’ll write a poem about myself: Yo soy Nina. Me gusta el chocolate, leer, y me gustan los patos. No me gusta el chocolate blanco, nijugar al fútbol. Yotengopelocastaño. Soy alta, joven, y desorganizada. No soy baja, niartística. Me llamo Nina

  11. Shared writing… • Sample of a language frame • Me llamo___________. Me gusta _______y ________. No me gusta_________ ni______. Yo soy_______________ y ________________. Yo no soy ____________ni_______________. Me llamo____________.

  12. Collaborative writing • Students may elect to use the writing fame from the shared writing phase. • I’d have them write the poem as if they were a celebrity.

  13. Independent writing • Students write their own piece as themselves. • Students may use the writing frame if needed.
