Joy Write Question 3
The series of posts for “Joy Write” refer to the title of the text our new Summer Institute participants are reading. This is a fabulous book that examines writing instruction, published in 2017 by Ralph Fletcher. Our SI participants are going to comment on the questions, but any reader is welcome to contribute (whether you have read the book or not).
What do you think about choice vs. structure in the writing workshop?
Can you balance both? At what cost?
(Think about our discussion regarding preparing students for state tests, for the next teacher, etc.)
