10 + ways of Raising Student Achievement in Literacy

The joy of writing ...
Things that make a difference
Clearly purposeful
For an audience
That gets a result
Where students experience success
Where students take responsibility but get the support they need to get better
Where students can see and measure their own progress and take some for reflecting on that and reporting to parents

Authentic Feedback
Genuine reader reaction

Collaborative writing
Bouncing ideas around
Opportunities to "borrow" ideas

Remember that we are writing for a reader and we need to:
Paint pictures and images in the mind of the reader through...
Choosing words that are rich and interesting
Varying sentence length and complexity and pace
Sequencing the actions correctly
Checking for text conventions and spelling
