  1. Just a quick couple of pointers:
    in shared writing, highlighting the use of proper nouns and then pronouns; allusions to earlier events; consistency of mood; actions that are in keeping with character; in non-fiction, concluding a paragraph that refers,however briefly to the next paragraph and wherever possible an opening topic sentence. Always teach these points through guided or shared writing and make explicit the deliberate decisions that I make as a writer. Also ask that children highlight/annotate good examples of the above when this is a focus in guided reading. Hope this is a little helpful. Also have to stress consistency with intended effect/genre etc.
