Learn Self-Regulated Strategy Development

SRSD is an evidence-based framework for teaching close reading and writing, including sentence and vocabulary level skills. It teaches students how to take themselves through the writing process independently and equips them with the necessary skills and strategies to become self-regulated, successful writers.

Through carefully analyzing peer-written exemplars and published mentor texts, SRSD exposes learners to the features of effective writing at the outset and all through the year. Explicit instruction prepares students to incorporate these features into their own pieces. They learn key strategies and solidify their skills through: collaborative writes, self/peer feedback and embedded deliberate practice of sentence level skills. To facilitate a gradual release, teachers model writing, offer scaffolds and support ongoing goal setting. The end result? Confident, joyful and effective writers. SRSD is the only writing approach that meets ESSA's highest tier of evidence.
