Grafted Writing - Getting Students Excited about Writing (and Sharing) in the Target Language (Double Session)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Learn writing techniques that allow students to personalize texts and confidently grow their writing abilities. Help students “graft” their own creative, original ideas to texts, in such a way that personalizes and gives them ownership of the story. Lead them to confidently and freely write better in the target language. (Note: the "More than Timed Writings" session tomorrow (Friday) at 10:30am is very simliar. The information is the same, but it will exclude some of the more interactive elements in this "Grafted Writing" presentation.)
