4th grade is the grade level where start to encourage our students to write more on their own and organize themselves independently. As teachers, we want to ensure that they are following solid procedures and get themselves in line to form good writing habits. This all starts by being organized and planning out what we are going to write. In order to plan, you need to first understand the task and the audience that will be reading your piece. I spend a good amount of time helping students learn how to do an audience analyses and look at the work they are about to create from the perspective of the audience. Ultimately if your work does not speak to your audience, the piece cannot have the intended affect. In this section we will lead students through the various phases of the writing process and help them realize the pre-writing, production, and editing phases of the writing process. We also look at including the use of technology in this process.
