Visions for Teaching Writing in NC classrooms with NCCAT

If our pupils are to be successful in school and in all aspects of their lives, they must learn to write. What is needed to learn to write? Our pupils must receive adequate practice and instruction in writing because writing does not develop naturally. A basic goal for North Carolina elementary teachers is to teach our pupils to write effectively and flexibly. An important ingredient in supporting a vision for teaching writing is to apply methods with a proven track record of success.
