Independent WritingWriting independently
Do I need to be independent?
While travelling through the school, I am asked how independent and independent writing should be. Many different ways of interpreting'independent' writing in school have been shown this weeks on our Facebook and Twitter pages. It has a frightening reach. I' ve spoken to instructors who do not write independently, although the co-workers think that what they deliver is independent writing.
I' ve also talked to the school teacher, where they regularly force the kids to write whether they can or not! What independent writing is and how it must be proven in order to give a standard or an evaluation is made clear.
However, it does not clearly illustrate what independent writing actually is. A sentence I often hear here is: "Independent at the moment of writing. It is often used when a teacher builds up a play of writing and then tells the child to finish an expanded play on the basis of their own study, the term "hot writing" also seems to be becoming more and more common.
Yet, when some colleges ask kids to type only cool plays for appraisal and other colleges allow teachers to have a great deal of feedback just before writing result are the kids all on a same playfield? Facebook's two answers that show the different teacher approach.
The suggestion was that instructors should teach the language and develop it into a writing tool before asking the students to use it in a different area. Is it really a different situation when a professor teaches'diary entries' with a key text, e.g.'holes' with a writing result, in which a child is asked to immediately afterwards start writing a journal in a special field, e.g. as an Anglo-Saxon?
Maybe the request to the kids to write a journal of a Anglo-Saxon a whole weekend later is a big one. But if the instructor is reminding the kids of the journal size or setting performance criterions, is that still an independent writing? When we give the kids performance metrics, how do we know if they would have accepted without them?
Series of writings. An area of writing that has been constructed as far as writing, which is a re-visit of the abilities learnt with a rapid display of characteristics and writing, which is a re-visit of a learnt text style at a much later date without a display of characteristics and performance criterions.
