  • In a shared writing session you’re in charge of the writing process with your learners contributing their ideas and suggestions. For example, you can:
    • demonstrate the skill or strategy that has been identified as a learning focus for the class as you compose the text
    • encourage the learners to contribute their ideas, using the criteria that have been developed together as guidelines
    • think aloud, demonstrate, ask questions, prompt, explain and discuss the most appropriate language choices with your learners, as you write
    • involve the learners at various stages, asking them to construct a sentence or two, suggest more appropriate vocabulary, or evaluate your language choices, in small groups or pairs
    • discuss their ideas and give them feedback
