Writing Workshop

Integrated Language Arts (Reading, Writing, Spelling, Listening & Speaking, and Managing Information)

At ISB, our curriculum focuses on developing students’ comprehension, fluency, and stamina. At the center of our program are the reading and writing workshops. The workshop framework includes a mini-lesson to explicity model skills and strategies, followed by a chunk of time for private reading or writing while the teacher confers with individuals or guides small group learning (i.e. guided reading, strategy lessons, and interventions). The workshop also includes partnership time to develop communication and collaboration skills. In addition to the workshop time, the components of our balanced literacy framework include:

  • Daily interactive read-aloud
  • Shared reading and Interactive Writing (Primary)
  • Word Study
  • Literacy development in content areas
  • Digital literacy (Intermediate)

Writing Program in Grade 4

Our writing curriculum focuses on developing fluent writers who write to convey meaning through daily writing practice, studying how authors write, writing for a specific audience, and cycling through the writing process regularly as they write, rehearse, draft, revise. edit, and publish their writing. Our writing units of study include personal narrative, expository, poetry, persuasive, and fiction.
