Independent Composition

Independent composition 

Independent composition takes place when students are ready to work on their own texts drawing on the understandings about genre and language developed through modelling and guided practice.

During the independent writing stage, the teacher’s role is to guide the students in their composition, supporting them to creatively design and compose their texts independently. For some less confident students, this might mean closely following a model but for most students it will involve a creative turn and an expansion of their repertoire.
