Laying the Foundation: Why Good Writing Starts with the Teacher

Improving Teacher Practice to Improve Student Writing

In 2016, one study found that fewer than 50% of all surveyed teachers had taken a college class devoted to writing instruction. Many teachers work hard to improve how they teach writing, but few can model the writing process for students, accurately assess their work, or create strategies to move writing to the next level.

Based on extensive research on writing instruction, this guide takes an in-depth look at the studies of instructional practices that build the foundation of effective writing instruction. What the panel of educational professionals found supports what Empowering Writers has proposed for the past two decades.
