There is no single reason that struggling writers struggle. The five-step writing process provides a natural scaffold that can allow any student to effectively organize information and ideas, and express them for an authentic audience. There are some great free technology tools that assist students with each phase of this process, taking advantage of student strengths while minimizing or eliminating the negative impact of barriers students encounter in traditional methods. This session will explore various reasons why students sometimes struggle to write; highlight the differences between communication, writing, and handwriting; and demonstrate some free tools that teachers can use in their classrooms to increase confidence and competence for all students. Michael will highlight some INFOhio resources as well.
