Students have spent time this week learning Powerwriting. This form of writing will help them organize their writing in History in a clear and concise way. Two strategies I implement that greatly ensure success with Powerwriting are the pre-writing outline and the use of highlighters. The outline enables students to formulate their thoughts easily. The use of highlighters is an organizational tool that allows students to see the flow and progression of their introductory sentence, examples, supporting details and conclusion. Powerwriting will get easier with practice and will help my students become adept at writing in History.
