The Simple View of Writing (Berninger and Amtmann, 2003) provides a framework to understand the relationship between transcription skills, text generation, working memory, and executive functions. Participants will learn that transcription skills (handwriting, spelling, keyboarding) are as critical as developing composition skills, in developing proficient writers. This session will show teachers how to use this model to determine students’ writing strengths and needs with an emphasis on transcription skills and sentence instruction.
