The Write Turn

The Write Turn® provides evidence-based strategies and explicit instructional techniques that guide students through the writing process (brainstorming, organizing, writing and revising); a process that exceeds a typical writer’s workshop.

Strategies include The Write Turn’s FIX Strategy for revising and self-regulation, which helps students make “meaningful changes” that improve the quality of their stories and essays.

Students consistently benefit from this explicit instruction as they learn to internalize these strategies and incorporate what they’ve learned into the classroom curriculum.

Students are introduced to strategies that improve the quality of their writing through:

  • Planning, writing, and revising skills (The FIX Strategy)
  • Brainstorming, categorization, and organizational skills
  • Language processing skills that improve sentence/paragraph writing
  • Annotating text and writing more detailed and complex topic sentences
  • Sentence-combining & writing grammatically correct sentences
  • Internalizing writing, revising, and self-regulation strategies

We also support students with communication disorders, expressive and receptive language delays, and language-based learning disabilities that affect reading and spelling.
