Writing in early childhood
In 2014 Boston Public Schools Published a Writing Framework and a Writing Guide website. This framework outlines the three types of writing (narrative, informational, and argument) that students should become proficient. Boston also created a Toolbox for Writing that includes examples of how writing could be incorporated in content and daily routines. PARCC has also created a list of suggested activities for writing for K2-3. We also have a set of new Rubrics for Writing that Boston has just created for 2014. Here are the MA Frameworks for Writing. How is teaching different under the Common Core? These reflection guides help educators think about
past, current and future instructional practices.
