Capstone Project Title
The research question addressed in this project was, how can primary teachers intrinsically motivate their reluctant writers through narrative writing? It documents how teachers can encourage their struggling writers to write narrative stories. The literature found was focused on motivation strategies, how to identify and teach struggling writers, and effective writing strategies. During the research, there was the idea of interactive writing and how seeing the writing being done by the teacher, before the students try is effective. The research has shown that young writers need scaffolding and modeling to effectively learn how to write different genres. The project is a presentation focused on teaching primary teachers the effectiveness of motivating struggling writers. The project’s limitation is it is only presented once during a professional development session lasting 30-40 minutes long. The plans for the future of this project are for teachers to bring the strategies back to their classrooms.
