Guided writing

Guided writing serves as a scaffold to independent writing. Teachers discuss and model writing strategies with students. These can include using acronyms, templates, and writing frames. More or less support can be provided depending on the needs of students.

Guided writing is an effective way of modelling the structure and language of a range of text types. It also supports students to sequence and structure their ideas to meet the purpose of the writing task. Differentiated support can easily be provided by giving more or fewer prompts/starters. As students become familiar with the form, less support can be given.
