The Writing Rope: The Strands That Are Woven Into Skilled Writing

Tuesday, December 1, 6:30-7:15 PM, EST

Much has been written about the multiplicity of skills involved in reading (e.g., the five components). However, when it comes to writing instruction, teachers are not sure about what they should teach. With a nod towards Hollis Scarborough’s “Reading Rope”, Joan Sedita has developed a model that identifies writing skills as strands that are woven together to support skilled, fluent writing. During this webinar, she will present a writing instruction model for all grades that addresses each of these strands in the writing rope: Critical Thinking, Syntax, Text Structure, Writing Craft, Transcription Skills.
