Developing 21st Century Writers
The Galloway School believes strong writing and communication skills will open doors to many possibilities. Good writers develop their craft over time. Galloway is committed to developing proficient writers who are well-prepared to write for a variety of purposes using varied writing structures and styles. Galloway students begin each day writing. Teachers follow a school-wide calendar to ensure all writing genres are taught within a prescribed timeframe with sufficient time for publication.
The Galloway writing program is built around the National Council for Teachers of English writing standards and Lucy Calkin’s Writers Workshop. Students receive daily writing instruction in the classroom via the Writer's Workshop model, which takes writing instruction to a deeper level with weekly mini-lessons that emphasize a specific writing convention or strategy.
