What is it?
A series of classroom posters of a five step writing process: plan, draft, review, edit/proofread, publish.
There’s plenty out there, but as always I didn’t like the design at all. As always, the images are from Google Images.
I believe when I made these, I based them on the writing process in Merryn Whitfield’s Blakes Writing Guide for Primary Students, (2009, Pascal Press: Glebe, New South Wales). Despite the name, the Blakes guides are most definitely out of the reach of most Primary Students; literacy-wise, they’re certainly appropriate for my Year 11 literacy classes, so I use them extensively.
How it’s used:
I printed them out at A3 size, laminated them and put them up in my English classroom. They are mostly so I can refer students to the stages when confronted with the ‘Why do I have to do a draft?’ grumble.
I had an idea to make them interactive: I would provide students each with a name card (or a Post-It) and have them move their name along as they completed each stage in the process.
