This study examined how teachers were prepared to teach writing as well as what methods they use when instructing in writing. It is important for teachers to be knowledgeable of writing because it is a skill that students will continue to need after school. Data was collected from teachers through a questionnaire, field notes, and a writing sample. After analysis of the data, it was found that teachers lack the formal preparation to teach writing and modeling, providing adaptations and re-teaching of certain skills are present when instructing in writing. As writing continues to be an important skill, teachers need to be knowledgeable with up to date research in order to provide effective instruction.
