Writing: Students Write While Teachers Confer

The teacher discusses writing with individual students while other students continue to write. This student was cheerfully interacting with the teacher and happened to cover her face as she laughed about something the two of them were discussing about the writing.

The students write topics of their own choice whenever possible. Sometimes students write to a prompt when the curriculum demands come into play.

All students write every day in Four Blocks classrooms.

The teacher has opportunities to confer with several students each day. The teacher has a conversation about writing with the students she/he meets with.
