When my school adopted Writing Workshop, my special education students were overwhelmed.  They needed lots of support to reduce their cognitive load and break tasks down into manageable steps.  I spent many hours adapting writing tasks to their individual levels.  My students stopped avoiding writing and started to feel successful and confident.  In fact, general ed teachers noticed and asked to use my resources with their struggling students, too.  I’m happy to share my work with you in the hopes it will lighten your workload and make writing time more enjoyable and stress-free for everyone.
