School-Wide Write

As part of the school based inquiry projects, PHSS has focused on improving the writing levels of all of our grade 8 and 9 students for the past three years. By using the BC Writing Performance Standards, students are learning about the value of style, form, conventions, and meaning in writing. With scaffolding done by the English teachers, SEAs, and the ELL and LIF teachers, students are becoming aware of every aspect of the writing process.  In addition, students are receiving feedback that tells them what they are doing well and feedback that answers the question “Where to next?” with their writing. This year, students completed three school-wide writes and we are seeing an improvement with the average score levels of both the grade 8 and 9 cohorts. We will continue this work in the years ahead.SWW
