Join us for a peek inside a day with Accelerated Literacy Learning's Susan Radley Brown. This post shows a recent day at River Oaks Elementary in Houston as Susan works through a Writer's Workshop day with teachers and students.
Teachers talking and planning
Student author sharing and publishing
Students thinking and writing, and a third grade student sifting through his notebook
A third grade student at River Oaks Elementary is sifting through his writer’s notebook to see if there are topics that he has written a lot about or thinks are really important to him. Then, he marks them with posted notes.
When students choose their own topics, the final piece of writing is truly authentic!
