Multisensory Writing: Framing Your Thoughts (Project Read Module)

A Multisensory Writing Program conceived by Tori Greene and Mary Lee Enfield

Purpose:
To build an understanding of the function of words in composing a sentence leading to paragraph writing through a structured, sequential multisensory approach.

This two day module begins with building a “bare bones” sentence consisting of a single subject and predicate and progresses to more complex sentence structures leading to paragraph writing. The program features the use of mnemonic hand signals, pocket chart cards, and a coding system to associate word function as well as planning sheets for each kind of paragraph.

The first part of the workshop uses a systematic multisensory approach to teach the role of words in composing a sentence and to recognize patterns such as subject describers and predicate expanders. During the second part, participants practice applying sentence development around the “key point” of different types of paragraphs.
