Reflection on Developing ScenesSince I had no idea as to how to teach writing to children, I wanted the opportunity togive it a try this semester. I was not sure where teachers to begin this daunting task. However,my observations in the field over the course of my fieldwork I have noticed that my cooperationteachers were all following a similar order to their approach in teaching children to write. Eventhough the grades I have observed have ranged from third to fifth, the teachers in theseclassrooms seem to have followed the same teaching strategies.In my methods class I have learned about the structure of writer¶s workshop. Using thisframe work I learned teachers use a mini lesson to teach writing strategies to students. But I wasnot sure what these strategies even looked like.Since I did not know what these strategies looked like, I asked my cooperating teacher toshow me what she uses and if I could teach that lesson. I learned she followed the strategies of Lucy Calkins. Well this made things a whole lot easier.Based on the information i learned from Calkins approach, I taught a lesson ondeveloping scenes in a story using a ³story mountain.´I feel I did a pretty good job with lesson even though i was not comfortable with the writingstrategy. My mini lesson¶s object could have been clearer, but as the lesson proceeded mystudents understood the strategy. I knew my lesson was successful because my students wereable to make "story mountain" for the realist writing piece they were working on.
