Working in their writing pairs, allow the students to write the remainder of their narrative texts. Monitor and support the students as required.
Teachers may wish to set a time limit for writing, or they may allow the students to take as much time as they need to complete the task. Ensure that the students know exactly how much time they have and provide regular reminders of how much time is remaining.
Check on how the students are progressing with their narratives. Depending on the time limit set for writing, the students may need another lesson to complete their stories.
Allow more confident writers to work individually, rather than in pairs (if they wish to do so).
Allow students who find writing challenging to work with a teacher or teacher aide during the pair activity.
