Writing / Production



Writing is a struggle against silence.Carlos Fuentes



The goal of the writing competency is to help students become confident, independent writers and producers. 

We strive to support students in their development to become writers who:

  • see writing as a positive and powerful means of communicating ideas, thoughts, experiences and information to others
  • use writing to clarify their thinking and make sense of their world
  • are aware of their audience and purpose for writing and producing texts 
  • are developing skills and strategies for producing texts that meet the needs and expectations of their audience

In this section of the website we look at a variety of instructional strategies that help students become engaged, successful writers and producers of a range of print, media and multimodal texts. You will also find many practical classroom ideas.
