On December 11th, I had the opportunity to host Writable's Twitter chat. If you are interested in learning more about the best strategies and methods to support your students in writing, I recommend you join this weekly chat. All you have to do is follow the hashtag #WritingMatters at 7:00 PM ET and join the fun.
Shaelynn Farnsworth gracefully invited to lead the chat and focus on how to support ELs during writing. I didn't come up with a super catchy title but our focus during the chat was "Writing Instruction for ELs".
When I think about supporting ELs in their writing, I think about interactive writing, visual writing, scaffoldings, and their classroom environment. This is why I made my questions around these topics.
We had great participation and a lot of great tips and resources were shared. I thought about blogging this with the hope that you'll find a great tip that can help you support your students become the successful writers you want them to become.
If you feel like answering these questions, please do so following the hashtag mention above and tag me when posting your answers. I'd love to learn from you.
Below you'll find a link to our chat. The Wakelet below includes all the tweets posted during the chat. Feel free to respond to a post and/or add a response to any of the questions. It is never too late to share your awesome ideas. Remember to tag me at @EmilyfranESL and @GetWritable to continue the conversation.
Thank you for reading!
