How Google Drive Makes It Easier To Teach Writing

Making my students switch from MS Word to Google Drive not only eliminated the headache of incompatible versions and big email attachments. It's made them better writers.

After Zadie Smith’s 10 rules of writing, here come 8 from the one and only Neil Gaiman:

Supporting Writing with Images « Teaching with the Library of Congress

Supporting Writing with Images « Teaching with the Library of Congress | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

By Sherry Levitt

 

"Teachers agree that ease and fluency in writing come with frequent practice for a variety of purposes, whether making personal connections, analyzing information or constructing an answer to a document-based question.

 

"One way to incorporate more writing in the classroom is to create assignments using high-impact primary source images from the Library of Congress. Their real-world authenticity can rivet students’ attention, spark inquiry and draw them into a writing topic or task.

 

"To begin, find images that relate to the particular lesson, skill or curricular objective. Whatever the assignment, millions of images are readily available from the Library’s digital collections and from the Teachers Page. For prompts and questions to focus and guide students, use the teacher’s guide Analyzing Photographs and Prints. (Other versions are specifically adapted for maps, manuscripts, political cartoons, and sheet music.)"

Manage Google Docs with an Assignment Tracker

Manage Google Docs with an Assignment Tracker | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

One of the challenges of rolling out Google Docs for all students at our school is in managing all those docs students are turning in. Teachers are experiencing the frustration of cluttered In Boxes taken over by individual messages from students sharing their assignments. Fortunately, I have found an awesome idea from John Miller @162 that utilizes a Google Form as an Assignment Tracker. The idea is innovative, efficient and simple. Here's how John's invention works:

Comparing the CCSS for Writing with the Trait of IDEAS

Comparing the CCSS for Writing with the Trait of IDEAS | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

How close is the connection between the Common Core State Standards for Writing and the Six Traits of Writing? Somewhat close? Pretty close? Try VERY. In fact, virtually every standard references one trait or another. That’s because the traits are simply qualities that make writing work, and making writing work is the primary focus of both the traits and the CC writing standards.
