Building Effective and Innovative Practice – literacy across the curriculum
Category : Whats new
Self-regulation is an important part of building student agency. This is especially so when working with students to improve their motivation and engagement towards writing. Thinking critically, seeking and responding to feedback are important elements of all processes of composing text – including when preparing to write. When students plan – considering task, purpose and audience – they choose to use a range of language features and structures. Describing these, explaining their choices and seeking feedback from others builds knowledge and confidence towards a task right from the planning stages. See Effective Writing Instruction Alison Davis (2013) for lots of other examples of agentic teaching and learning.
