Week 4 – Assignment

Writer’s Workshop Blog

As you learned in Chapter 7 of your textbook, writing workshop is a great way to encourage English Language Learners (ELLs) (and also general education students) to connect their personal experiences to enrich the writing experience while also becoming more proficient in English. This strategy has multiple steps that scaffold the writing process beginning with prewriting or mapping ideas and moving through each stage until the final stage of publication. 

For this assignment, you will create a writer’s workshop lesson plan that clearly maps out each stage of the writing process, beginning with a clearly written writing prompt that serves as a guide but also allows for creativity and flexibility with special attention to individual student cultural backgrounds and experiences. The end goal of the lesson is for students to create a blog (see below). 

The following components are required in your lesson plan:

  1. Introduction: Describe the lesson information including: 
  • Lesson Title. 
  • Grade Level.
  • One specific, measureable writing learning objective. 
  • Student population: Describe the population of students in this writing class (this should be based on your school district’s demographics). This should be an inclusive class with both general education students and ELLs. 


  1. Standards: Discuss the Common Core State Standard(s) (or your state’s standards), English Language Development Standard(s), and NETS-T Standards that are addressed in this lesson. 


  1. Lesson: Using the listed steps in Chapter 7 (you will not be addressing all the steps, just the ones listed below), create a writer’s workshop for your students that is age, grade, and readiness appropriate with the end goal of creating a blog. Your lesson plan will include the following: 
  • Prewriting-Describe the structured writing prompt you would give to students that provides guidance on the topic with enough flexibility to share personal experiences relevant to their lives. 


    • Drafting – Using key vocabulary that is consistent with your objective and the standards, create an outline of what you would expect students to include in their blog (for example: personal introduction, likes and dislikes, family, hobbies, future goals, etc.) 


      • Self-Correction and Revision – Explain how you will have students self-edit their work. With a rubric? Guiding questions? Check sheet? 


        • Publication – Using one of the blogging website provided (Top 10 Free Online Blogging Platforms), create a blog pretending you are fictional student for who your lesson plan was intended. You can look at some examples of student blogs in the “Recommended Resources” section. Be sure to provide your blog’s link. 


        1. Reflection: Reflect on the writer’s workshop lesson by addressing the following:
        • How will you have the students contribute to their blog throughout the school year? 
        • How will you use the ELLs’ blogs throughout the school year to formally and informally assess their language and writing proficiency growth? 
        • Finally, how will you use the blog as a way for peers to interact and collaborate during their learning process? 

        The lesson plan will be two to four pages in length (in addition to the title and reference pages) using APA format. Be sure to use at least two scholarly sources in addition to the text.

        Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
