Now teachers have a "how to" book to help them teach students the strategy of visualization and the important role it plays in literacy.
By integrating visualization into the writing process, students think as they create. And since an image looks the same in any language--this research-based strategy benefits every learner! The ultimate goal is for students to become lifelong writers. This research-based book provides teachers with 55 lessons arranged developmentally into 15 goals.
Writing Indicators - each lesson is prefaced with information to help teachers choose lessons that match the needs of their students. The indicators are labeled with writing traits to help teachers comprehend how each lesson incorporates multiple elements of writing.
Guided Practice - 55 lessons are arranged developmentally into 15 goals within three stages: realizing, understanding, and applying. Each of the stages contains goals to help students gain competence in that stage.
Modeling - sample lessons instruct teachers to share their thinking. Student writing examples serve as models to help teachers assess their students' writing.
Application - at the end of each goal, simple instructions help teachers apply the learning through reinforcement activities, questions/cues for individual students, and links to literature.
Instructional Focus - includes indicators found within writing standards of many states. These indicators easily link with the six traits of writing (see "Using the Lessons" sample for more information)
Book Design - this book is set-up as three stages: realizing, understanding, and applying.
