Write 'n' Pass

Write 'n' Pass is a cooperative learning strategy that gets students responding and writing with partners.  There are many, many ways to use Write 'n' Pass.  It can be used as a quick formative assessment or as a filler for that extra five minutes of time.  With this strategy 50% of your students are engaged at once and held accountable.  A great alternative to raise your hand if you can.....  This is one of my favorite strategies and well-known by my students!

Below you will find specific directions for using the strategy and ways to use it in all content areas.



The possibilities are endless!  What are other ways that you could use this in your classroom?

This is such a GREAT activity idea! I'm a speech pathologist and this would be great for my students (when I return to work). I am going to pin this...LOVE! I just found you thru My Kindergarten Kids and I am following you now! :D

Also, I'd love to invite you to link up this or any other fun activities at my Thrifty Thursday Link up, if you want! It is a linky I started to bring parents, teachers, and other educators together to share free or nearly free learning activities. Happy new year!

I love this activity! We've used it to practice writing dialogue. I give the students a list of characters, then they carry on a conversation between the characters, punctuating the dialogue correctly. I'm anxious to incorporate the ideas you posted--so much fun!
