It all depends on your teaching approach. i start with standards, and I developed all my lesson plans around them. It is not as if you manage the time in the day so much as you manage how many standards you are going to cover. And, if you make sure that you cover all the standards, the writing standards will take care of themselves as will the time of the day.

We use Google Drive and every student in our school has a user name and password given to them at the beginning of the year. They write all their work using Google Docs and it saves automatically. Teachers can then go in, see where they are, make comments on their writing and then we have enough time to conference in class with those that aren't keeping up with where everyone else is working. It has worked great so far, the only thing is that you need to spend time outside of the class commenting...
Our teachers are struggling with finding enough time to fit writing in during the day. Any ideas?
