Engaging the Adolescent Learner

Writing in the Disciplines
(Even When You’re Not a Writing Teacher)

Douglas Fisher & Nancy Frey


The focus on college- and career-ready skills requires writing instruction by all teachers, not just the English teacher. Here you’ll find a number of strategies for short, frequent, daily writing experiences that can help students increase their ability and stamina to write across content areas. Included are strategies for discipline-specific writing, writing to learn, on-demand writing, writing to explain thinking, writing to summarize, and timed writing.
