Our Ninja's participated in shared writing. This was carried out in mixed ability groups.
- students first brainstorm and record ideas on their given writing topic
- one student will begin writing, when the teacher says "pass it on", the first student passes the writing onto the next student.
- The student read what has been written then continue to add onto it until the next "pass it on"
- When every member has had a turn to write they choose their best part to share with the class.
A very good way to share ideas, writing techniques and opportunity to help each others writing.
