      I would begin with a lot of shared writing you do together as a group. This allows you to be explicit in your instruction while also scaffolding support as needed. A nice thing to do after shared writing is to have the students all write about a shared experience (the art class from yesterday) independently using small dry erase boards. Starting with a question like, "who was there?" Having them write a word or two, then moving on to where/what happened, etc.
