I'm having great difficulty teaching this year's class writing. Nothing I have done works for about a third of the class. I've tried graphic organizers, I model a lot, we work in small groups, peer-editing/revising. I'm ready to throw my hands up and give up. I've never felt this way before. All of the other classes got it, almost every one. We have been doing this since October. Yesterday I told a student to rewrite his introduction, and he asked me,"What's that?" UGH! Our state test is the 2nd week of March. Does anyone have a unique graphic organizer or any links that will help?
