I have to do that too. I need to see a plan before I can work on the final piece. Using these online tools are great for all children. I've always recognized that as an organization tool, but after reading the article and watching videos, I see that breaking up the story writing process is an organizational tool in itself. Just like the model in the article, it is all interconnected but it's still a way for students to keep organized. Plan, draft, revise, share, publish, breaking it up into tasks, including a planning map, makes the writing a lot less scary.

    One thing that I saw that was implemented a lot in the videos and articles that we read was the use of organizing writing ideas in some sort of visual. For example, I know that Rakeem used a visual... more

      I agree. Many students with ASD have a hard time making connections. Therefore, organizing activities such as bubble maps could help them better visualize things and make connections.

      I have found great success in using bubble maps to help my students with ASD organize their thoughts for writing. As we all know students with ASD are visual learners therefore having a place to put... more

      I think this is a great point. I think allowing students to organize their ideas by drawing or doing bubble charts also goes along with the point this week of not giving our student specific writing... more

      I agree that outlines are very important. There are so many different options for students which makes if easier to get them interested. If a student really hates the web idea than they can do a... more

        I agree that outlining can make the paper less scary. I had a teacher that would stretch out a long paper by taking it one day at a time. I found this to be very beneficial and made the assignment... more

      This is great! I also think that providing some type of pre-made graphic organizer for the student is really helpful. This models for them how they can organize their information. As they progress,... more

      I agree! I loved that this was emphasized this week. I think that the use of visuals definitely helps students to organize their thoughts and overall leads to better writing. This method seems like... more

      I definitely agree. This is a very useful technique when writing. I use an upside down triangle. The first time this was shown to me was in college and it made my writing much less of a challenge. I... more
