Welcome to WIF Writing

Instructor Dollie Evans



In this module, you will create a poem based on the mentor text, “Where I’m From” by George Ella Lyons. You will write your own poem using the writing process, and then share your poems with your classmates. Hopefully we will build a writing community as we go along.

Your Objectives are:

  • to become familiar with and apply the writing process (prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing) in your own writing.
  • to write a 5 stanza poem
  • to utilize peer conferencing techniques to help improve your writing and your classmates' writing.
  • to utilize technology to publish your writing.

The Georgia Standards are:

  • ELA5W1 Students produce writing that establishes an appropriate organizational structure, sets a context and engages the reader, maintains a coherent focus throughout, and signals a satisfying closure.
  • ELA5W2 Students demonstrate competence in a variety of genres.
  • ELA5W4 Students use the writing process to develop, revise, and evaluate writing.

Your assessment for this module will be based on the following scale:

  • 30 pts Discussion
  • 10pts Brainstorming Map
  • 30pts Poem
  • 20 pts Project
  • 10pts Quiz
