Writing / Production

Writing is a struggle against silence.Carlos Fuentes

 

 

The goal of the writing competency is to help students become confident, independent writers and producers. 

Students who:

  • see writing as a positive and powerful means of communicating ideas, thoughts, experiences and information to others
  • use writing to clarify their thinking and make sense of their world
  • are aware of their audience and purpose for writing and producing texts 
  • are developing skills and strategies for producing texts that meet the needs and expectations of their audience

In this section of the website we look at a variety of instructional strategies that help students become engaged, successful writers and producers of a range of print, media and multimodal texts. You will also find many practical classroom ideas.
