Guiding Students into Making Real-World Writing Decisions Using "The Daily Me" (Part 1) - Shared screen with speaker view
Links to the recorded versions of the first four ERWC online webinars are available at the ERWC Community homepage: https://writing.csusuccess.org/
Hi Cristina! Having seen Jeff’s presentations before, I can share that his strategies for guiding students through their own revision and reflection process are applicable for grades 6-12 (and also to my work as a college writing instructor).
He’ll be showing us how students can use Google Slides to reflect on their writing process and decisions.
This is exciting!
One of the lessons we learned from the 2015 WestEd evaluation of ERWC is that classes were spending more time on reading than writing—probably because of some of the issues Jeff is describing.
Just hearing an explanation, or even seeing a model, has never been enough for me as a writer. I almost always have to write something the wrong way before I write it the right way.
Hoping he shows us something about helping students develop metacognitive knowledge and skills in both the realms of reading and writing, maybe simultaneously.
I’m a big fan of Warner’s book.
All registered participants of this session will be emailed a link to the recorded version of the session.
The webinar recordings will also be posted in the ERWC Online Community.
ERWC 3.0 has built-in opportunities for productive struggle. This is the path to growth and independence.
“You can’t fix what doesn’t exist”—I love this so much!
Yes, even the pros go through this “messy” process of writing, and then they focus on the best of the first drafts and move forward from there.
“Write it, then right it!”
I love this- But I’m somewhat confused. Is this suggesting they write the essay before reading the material??
I think he's saying the reading is completed before you start the writing (separate processes)
A lot of students take a test and read the questions first then go read the passage to find the answers.
“If you start with writing, it motivates students with a purpose.” This seems like the experiment where you have students make claims without evidence and then have them compare those claims to arguments that emerge from a process of reasoned inquiry.

And all registered participants of this session will be emailed a link to the recorded version of the session. Plus, it will be posted to the ERWC Community site
This approach also reminds me of the old guided composition or dictocomp activity in ERWC 2.0. This has evolved into Collaborative Text Reconstruction in ERWC 3.0, but students are still composing a text prior to instruction and then revising it in response to what they’ve learned.
did anyone get that other bitly?
Thank you Jennifer. That cleared it up for me quite a bit.
The Cult of Pedagogy Podcast
Hi Norm! Could you post your question or comment in the chat or Q&A? I don’t think Jeff can see who has raised their hand.
He spoke about Episode 144
Resource link needed in chat
What are the best type of first writing assignments? Long essay or short paragraph responses? Both?
Laura! Great to see you here!
Lynda Dubon Chavez
Thank you. Great presentation!
Jason Reynolds was on "The Daily Show" way back in January of 2018. He had a different perspective about young people and reading. Especially when it came to the literary canon.
“It depends” is a great response for fostering rhetorical thinking.
Can we see the bit.ly resources again?
Lisa McDorman, I will email it to you!
Lynda Dubon Chavez
Yes, The Daily Me is available on the ERWC Community site, under the 3.0 tab, 12th grade
Wow! I feel motivated. Thank you. Looking forward to part 2!
This is the revised, final version of “The Daily Me.”
Do you model this the first time you teach this or do you let students just run with it and formulate responses?
The links to the webinars will be on the homepage in the ERWC Online Community.
Do you give each student a google slide or are they seeing each others work?
The recorded sessions will include everything we saw and heard here, including the slides.
Wish he could Cristina, but with only 3 minutes left I don’t think Jeff will be able to go back and review slides.
We’re lucky that we’ll have Jeff with us next week for Part 2. If we run out of time today, we can ask some of these questions next Tuesday.
I am new, and I am not having luck with the bit.ly links. I am getting error messages. Maybe show us where and how to access the resources.
Thanks so much.
Yes, Thank you. Very helpful information.
Use to top search bar not the one in the center of the screen.
do I put that in the search bar?
Thank you, Jeff!
Thank you very much for great information! This will definitely help!
