Are you seeking an evidence based approach for writing that not only addresses students’ difficulties with the writing process but also their attitudes, beliefs, and motivation about writing? With the SRSD approach, students are taught explicitly strategies for specific writing genres (e.g., narrative, opinion/argumentative, informational) including general writing strategies (e.g., utilizing strong word choice, creating interesting leads). In addition, students are provided explicit instruction in self-regulated strategies, such as goal setting, self-monitoring self-reinforcement, and self-instruction, to manage the writing strategies. SRSD instruction of the strategies takes place across six flexible and recursive stages to meet students’ needs. These stages are:

Stage 1: Develop and Activate Background Knowledge

Stage 2: Discuss It

Stage 3: Model It  

Stage 4: Memorize It

Stage 5: Support It

Stage 6: Practice It

Session Outcomes:

  • Identify SRSD framework and instructional process

  • Apply new knowledge of SRSD

Audience:  Grades 2-12 Special Education Teachers

Participants will receive the book Powerful Writing Strategies for All Students by Karen Harris, Steve Graham, Linda, Mason, and Barbara Friedlander.
