Warning - Closed Vocabulary Sets Quote

Warning!  Closed Vocabulary Sets Quote

This quote is a caution against excessive use of 'closed' vocabulary sets for writing.  These refer to sets that have a limited # of words or symbols, chosen by another person.  Limiting students to these sets do not support their growth as writers, as they do not learn to:
• Generate their own ideas
• Translate those ideas using their own words
• Expand their spelling skills

So be sure that students have access to more than closed vocabulary sets.  ALL students must have access to the full alphabet!!
