All SRSD Resources on this site can be found here!
I am currently preparing for my summer adventure as a TN Core Coach. I always love when I go to in-service and the presenter has resources for me to take back to my classroom. The main subject of the in-services is SRSD. SRSD is Self-Regulated Strategies Development writing approach. There are six stages in SRSD:
Stage 1: Activate and Develop Background Knowledge Build enthusiasm for genre Develop background knowledge (and pre-skills) Read and discuss models Teach genre vocabulary
Stage 2: Discuss It Teach strategy (mnemonics) Map out models with graphic organizers Review and repair poor models, together then alone Establish benefits of strategy use Explore when / where to use strategy (generalization)
Stage 3: Model It Introduce self-talk Introduce focused model think alouds Students personalize and record self-statements Introduce collaborative writes Practice self and peer scoring with scales Begin graphing Introduce goal setting
Stage 4: Memorize It Internalize strategy via mnemonics Internalize personalized self-statements
Stage 5: Collaborative Practice Continue collaborative writing experiences Support students’ strategy use, fading support when ready Support self-regulation, fading support when ready Provide feedback on writing and self-regulation Fade prompting strategy use and self-regulation
Stage 6: Independent Use Students use strategies and self-regulate independently Fade overt self-instruction to covert (“in your head”) Ensure transfer and buy in to strategies and self-regulation
My first freebie for in-service is the POW posters. POW is mnemonic device to help students structure any kind of writing. This is a great tool for students before they start to write.
I’ve created 5 posters with the POW mnemonic and click here to get them!
I am also starting a Pinterest board for SRSD that you can find here. I’ll be adding resources as I find them. If you have resources please comment below.
