Reading Like a Writer

Read like a Writer

With COMPLETE credit to Meagan Newberry, who credited the Montana Writing Project and the book Wondrous Words by Katie Wood Ray

Meagan shared with me a much more descriptive, rich version of this assignment. This is my boiled-down version.

This is a really effective tool for getting students to analyze how writing works. I have used it successfully for genre study, for peer review, and for helping students generate meaningful, concrete blog comments in response to their peers’ writing.
