ONE thing you can easily do to promote literacy in your classroom…

Write and Discuss is a powerful tool for developing as writers. The daily practice of Write and Discuss captures what students experience in the world around them, while providing an opportunity to reflect on their thoughts with classmates in writing. Students are given three-to five sentences that they have created out of the oral input from peers or information generated during class time which help fuel their development into better writers!

It is part of the Daily Instructional Framework from Tina Hargaden and has transformed literacy in my World Language and ESL. I will upload an example in the resources. If you make ONE change in your teaching this year, it should be this!

HERE is a link to a simple “How to” I created for my presentations at ACTFL and COERLL. Please don’t hesitate to email me or comment below if you have any questions!
