Modeling is one of the most effective of all teaching strategies, and yet many teachers overlook this powerful tool in writing instruction. When teachers think aloud and then craft a piece of writing in front of their students, they give students a peek into what is possible in their own writing.

In this one-hour Web seminar, Kelly Boswell shares how to transform student writers by infusing short bursts of purposeful teacher modeling. As students watch an adult writer think, talk and write, they can develop the skills needed in order to craft writing that is both polished and purposeful. During this professional learning experience, Kelly:

  • showcases the kinds of writing students can do
  • explores the powerful strategy of teacher modeling
  • shows how mentor texts and modeling fit together to support young writers
