Quick Write

Quick write is… a short written response to an open-ended question. This literacy strategy helps to develop the students writing fluency, encourages reflection and critical thinking. Students will have the opportunity to develop their vocabulary, make connections, and demonstrate an understanding of the concepts covered.

How it works…the teacher will present the students with an open-ended question or topic. The teacher will then advise the students to write down as much as they can on that topic/ question within the time frame given. Advise the students that they do not have to worry about organization, grammar, or spelling.

Other classes it can be used in…

science… could be used for a students hypothesis before an experiment

social studies… could be used to assess student understanding of a big topic or their prior knowledge
