Writing Cognitive Task Planning:  How do we create content-aligned writing tasks? How do we plan out writing opportunities that are deeply connected to what we are reading and learning about? This writing task planning set provides support for educators to plan out which writing tasks best fit a unit of study and writing focus. The tools prompt the teacher to helicopter up to examine the big picture in order to create a plan with multiple opportunities for writing success across the year. These task-planning tools set the stage for backward planning and help to create a laser-like instructional focus for creating rigorous writing opportunities across all three text types. Any teacher can design samples to use with any class!
