Teaching Strategies for Writing at Varying Levels: Finding Ways to Make Writing a Passion and Not a Crisis Situation
Clancy, Sarah Kathleen

My Senior Individualized Project reflects upon my eleven-week student teaching experience with particular emphasis on teaching writing to varying levels of students. Students' comprehension levels and abilities ranged from low functioning to high honors students and this impacted the way that I planned lessons and taught classes. My focus in class changed based on the group's need, which derived from observations in the classroom and interactions with students. The conclusions of my research indicate that lower level students demand more structured instruction like grammar and structure and the honors students require more inspiration in their writing. These conclusions impacted the way that I will teach writing in the future.
