I am trying to give my writing time a "makeover". I went from writing workshop, Lucy Calkins Style. (Which I still love) to having four stations (art, art writing, write with teacher and write at your desk) and now I want to have a format like the one below but I haven't quite figured out the glitches. I would really appreciate any suggestions you might have. 10 minute class book time (focusing on one step of the writing process each day for the book.) I haven't quite figured out if I should partner students together to make a page the whole year or completely do it as a whole class etc. I think for publishing we would have to separate the pages and assign jobs to each student but I'm not sure what size of groups I should have before publishing. 20 minutes of stations (I would love suggestions on what you do- I think I would prefer all lengthy writing assignments and not games. However, I really don't know exactly what I want. I would love any ideas that you are willing to share.) writing trait mini-lesson 20 minutes of writing stations or something else I am not very experienced in shared writing or making class books. I could really use some help. What do you do for writing block?
