Walking and Writing
Keywords:writing instruction, writing achievenment, engagement, writing skills
Determined to introduce a new paradigm for struggling writers, the author developed an analogy that learning to write is like learning to walk. Both are developmental and involve readiness, support, learning from trial and error, and repetition. After all, we're not born knowing how to walk, and we're not born knowing how to write, but by applying researched based strategies effectively, we can learn to do both.
