The SCAMPER Mini-Lesson Model for Teaching Writing in the Primary Grades
Every year, large numbers of students in the US graduate from high school or drop out of school unable to write at the most basic level (Kamil, 2003; Snow & Biancarosa, 2003). The majority of our students benefit from carefully planned, individualized writing instruction based on what they need to know next about writing (Tompkins, 2008). The question is not whether to teach writing strategies…but how and when to teach them (Graham, 2011). The SCAMPER mini-lesson model provides direct instruction sessions designed to help primary students become strategic, skilled, self-regulated writers.
