Integrated writing is a must in our classrooms. Writing must be integrated into our content areas in order for our students to be successful. We have been hearing this for years. I was told this all the way through teacher college and into my career, but what I was missing was how. No one ever stopped to show me how to integrate writing, so that’s what I would like to do here. Without further adieu, seven strategies for integrating writing into your content areas.

Integrating Writing with Dice Simulations
Each simulation is a set of posters that you hang around the room and place a die by. Students are assigned a poster to start with and begin by rolling the die. According to the number they roll, they follow the directions on the poster, record their result, and travel to the next poster. This is done for as long as the teacher would like, or until students complete their recording sheet. Afterward students write a narrative piece about their journey.
I have completed dice simulations ready to go for you to integrate into your history and science curriculums as well as some that are just for fun!
