Ideas for an interactive writing piece come from everyday classroom and student experiences. These well-sequenced events (i.e., shared experience, talk, and writing) lead to deeper comprehension, expanded language, and strengthened writing skills. The authors organize the experiences into particular subject areas, special events, and everyday routines. Students at any age are capable of writing about a shared experience. Their reading block offers a range of authentic shared experiences that can launch an engaging interactive writing lesson. Both fiction and nonfiction texts, whether through read-alouds or shared readings, can be the core of valuable interactive writing experiences. This experience can flow nicely into an interactive writing lesson focused on informational writing. Additionally, when you or your students experience any type of classroom challenge or problem over the course of the school year, interactive writing can be a powerful tool for recording a strategy or solution.
