  • Acknowledging who they are as writers, including their skills and interests, helping them envision where they would like to be;
  • Empowering writers to get in touch with their personal writing purposes;
  • Engaging in regular routines that build and maintain reading and writing momentum;
  • Strengthening a writer’s sense of investment or involvement.
