Writing Strategies and Self-Regulated Strategy Development

Teaching middle grade students how to use strategies for the different stages of the writing process has been shown to improve students’ writing. A substantial body of research documents that one instructional model, Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD), is particularly effective for helping students become better writers. SRSD involves six stages of instruction and includes validated strategies for planning, drafting, and revising in multiple genres.  This toolkit provides materials for using SRSD and other, research-proven writing strategies.
