~A Universal Process for Any Writing Task ~

Writing Process Links

Elementary Students

There are many different stages of the writing process.  
Different students and teachers use different approaches to meet their needs.  
It is by no means a fluent process.  
Instead the writer may go back and forth through different stages.  
In this collection we hoped to provide you with links to some of the best.  

Young Authors' Workshop Resource Pages - The purpose of these pages is to provide middle school students (about Grades 4 through 7) with links to online resources that will take them step by step through the writing process. The steps in this process are those used in Writer's Workshop. The pages are designed for use by an individual student or small group of students working on a project, but could also be used by a child working at home or by a whole class.  There is also a page for teachers with links to additional creative writing resources and some writing projects.  These pages were prepared by Barbara Larochelle as the final project for the course ED PSY 597 at theUniversity of Alberta (site).
