Writing Process for Young Children

Question: How can teachers help young children experience the writing process?

Answer/Quote: “Tell children that their first writings are drafts or Sloppy Copies. Then you edit the stories for them, or edit the stories with them, or eventually encourage them to edit their own writings so that all is correct and universally understandable.” P. 489.

“The student writers should then re-write the stories into Glory Stories just the way all authors do.” P. 489.

 Title: “Sloppy Copy to Glory Story.” MD Bergenske. Reading Teacher (January 1988), 489.
