Applying Writing Strategies
There are several research-based strategies that can be used to teach students how to integrate the elements of the writing process (planning, organizing, writing and revising). Some of these strategies, such as, “POW + TREE” and “STOP and DARE,” incorporate mnemonic devices to help students remember the elements.
Review “Case Study: Kaynia” to inform this assignment.
Write a 500-750 word essay on writing strategies that can be taught to students to develop their skills in applying the elements of the writing process.
Discuss the following in your essay:
- Describe the “POW + TREE” and the “STOP and DARE” writing strategies, along with a third research-based strategy of your choice that is appropriate for Kaynia’s grade.
- Out of the three writing strategies you described, select one to use with Kaynia, rationalizing your choice and explaining how that strategy would allow her to meet her writing goal, as well as engage in personal reflection and apply standards to evaluate her own writing.
Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly sources.
