Questioning Fellow Writers to Help Them Support Their Purpose
Check out this video of two fifth grade students (you could do this at ANY grade) using questioning to one another to deep deeper with their persuasive topic. The "listener" has a sheet of paper with the "4 Exs" questions that writers often think about when they work to support their topic/purpose. Notice how the "speaker" generates ideas to support her future writing.
