PATTERNS

Sentence Building: grammar that improves scores on extended writing (GA Milestones)

With a laptop or an iPad with a keyboard, you can experience a language lesson online that is a research-based approach to teaching applied grammar. Our first experience with Georgia Milestones showed us that the language skills items were all applied. How well did students apply their grammar instruction in constructed responses and extended writing?

Imagine grammar instruction that has you on the edge of your seat with anticipation and gives your students something to get excited about! With W2Win Online, you will: 

  • Meet a challenging, new grammatical pattern in an oral, whole-group activity.
  • Practice the same pattern in written practice for mastery.
  • Gain confidence as the computer gives immediate feedback on each sentence puzzle and celebrates each item completed as it is signaled.
  • See the patterns you can assign students online every week.
  • See periodic written assessment that assess what students have retained from the five previous lessons.

Watch the level of excitement rise for grammar instruction as: 

  • Students ask to do another grammar lesson online.
  • You differentiate grammar assignments for your students with a single key-stroke.
  • The new grammatical patterns begin showing up in your students' writing.
  • You complete language study for the year by January or early February.

The future of ELA testing is all about applied grammar; how do students use the grammar we teach in sentences that include robust word choice. The Writing Next report of 11 must-do strategies in teaching writing singles out "Sentence-combining Practice" (Strategy #6) as the only approach to grammar that has a positive effect on scores of written expression. 

 

*Writing Next is a report of the Alliance for Excellent Education to the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Writing Next (2007) highlights specific teaching techniques that work in the classroom. It does so by summarizing the results of a large-scale statistical review of research into the effects of specific types of writing instruction on adolescents’ writing proficiency. Although several important reviews of research on writing instruction exist (e.g., Langer & Applebee, 1987; Levy & Ransdell, 1996; MacArthur, Graham, & Fitzgerald, 2006; Smagorinsky, 2006), the special strength of this report is its use of a powerful statistical method known as meta-analysis. This technique allows researchers to determine the consistency and strength of the effects of instructional practices on student writing quality and to highlight those practices that hold the most promise.
