What is SRSD?
SRSD’s Key Characteristics
SRSD is a complex approach to teaching writing, but thinkSRSD makes it easy for teachers to learn.
Research on SRSD done in empirical studies, as well as from schools partnering with us at thinkSRSD show the significant transformation this approach makes possible. While there are many elements to SRSD, key characteristics are often already familiar to teachers. Starting with these, launches a successful start.
Inspired with vision, prepared with scaffolds, students watch models of how to go through the writing process and begin to use it themselves, with support. This support is designed to launch them as agentive, self-regulating writers who are in charge.
thinkSRSD is the community of teachers and researchers who use and study SRSD. We offer SRSD in-person professional development and e-learning courses taught by teachers with decades of experience using SRSD. The teachers at thinkSRSD have taught SRSD courses for over 10 years, since offering the very first open enrollment course in SRSD in 2008.
