Geography Writing Frames For ELLs (They Can Be Used In Other Subjects, Too)



Last month, I shared videos, an article and a writing prompt I used in my ELL Geography class (see The Best Videos For Learning Why It’s Important To Study Geography).

However, I realized I forgot to include the “writing frame” including sentence starters that I gave my students to use as a guide.  You can download it here.  The frame can easily be modified for other subjects.  Let me know how you think I can make it better!  I did not put an enormous amount of thought or time into it, but it seemed to work well.

While I’m at it, I thought readers might also be interested in a writing frame that I have my same Geography students complete as a unit review. Again, it’s not something I spent a lot of time creating, but it, too, seems to work okay.

I’m adding this info to The Best Scaffolded Writing Frames For Students.
