As the articles suggests, modeling writing for students is a great way to help students see the thought process of writing. I am modeling writing with my second graders which is difficult for me, but hopefully with experience, will get easier. One of the hardest tasks for me is helping students with reviewing and revising their writing. Deciding how to help them develop the story, organize, and mechanics is challenging because I don't want to change their story or make them feel like they are a poor writer.
