Writing Across the Curriculum
The Teaching Channel- This website is an excellent source of instructional videos that show how to incorporate instructional strategies for writing in your classroom. The videos are generally 5 minutes in length. They take you into the teacher's classroom and demonstrate how the lesson is done. They also include the lesson plans and the materials for the lesson. There is also a good section on common core strategies that is being continuously updates. The site is free and offers great ideas in a short amount of time. You can also sign up to be on their e-mail list and be updated once a week on new videos. Several of our teachers have tried these and they have been successful lessons.
