Creating students who are confident writers is the goal of the Ignited Literacy Program. We accomplish this by spiralling our instruction and using an inquiry approach to writing. We focus on the curriculum first which prioritizes the writing process over from and style alone. We recognize that writing is personal and getting students to write means acknowledging they need to be in the drivers seat over what they write
Students will work on 4 independent work centers each week. These activities will allow a high degree of student voice and choice and support differentiated learning in the classroom. The centers are highly engaging as students choose topics that are personally relevant to write about.
The student independent work centers use differentiated choice boards to integrate and connect information within the centers to the weekly teacher directed lesson plans.
