Chalk Talk: Writing for Meaning
Many children and teens like writing as much as they like to read….not very much. Then there are others who like to write, about anything and everything, writing more than is needed on an assignment or within their homework. The key to writing for either type of student is to write for meaning. Whether it is Language Arts, Social Studies or Math, if your child’s work involves writing – an explanation, a story, an example – they are expected to write so that a reader can understand the intention of the story, that the explanation describes the problem or item. This means thinking about the question or item to respond to, thinking about an answer or ideas that addresses what is being asked and putting down on paper these thoughts. Some students want to get the activity over with, some put time and thought into what they need to write. Encourage your student to really think about what is being asked of them, what comes to mind, maybe even say their thoughts out loud then put those words on paper in a way that makes sense.
