This ONE DAY workshop is devoted to strategies specifically for expository essays in writing workshop. Strategies will be taught for supporting young writers with leads, supporting ideas, and strengthening paragraphs. We will teach you the thinking we go through when designing a strategy to support teaching. We will show you how to divide the playbook into clean categories to make it easy for you to navigate. This playbook will be a strong resource to support not only small group teaching, but give you clear anchor chart ideas for large group teaching as well.
****We highly encourage you to bring Jennifer Serravallo's Writing Strategies book as one resource to help you in the work. We will have copies on hand for you to buy if you do not already own this.
****We will have lots of supplies (including scrapbook paper and all craft basics), but if you want specific types of scrapbook paper, stickers etc. you might want to bring yours with you.
ALL WORKSHOPS WILL BEGIN AT 8:30 AM AND CONCLUDE AT 3:30 PM ALL REGISTRATIONS MUST BE PAID PRIOR TO THE WORKSHOP. BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A CONSULTANT DAY, TITLE ONE FUNDS WILL DO THIS FOR A REGISTRATION FEE.
You may want to arrive between 8:10 and 8:20 to sign in, pick up materials and find seating. If you are expecting a large group from your school, it is a good idea to come early if sitting together is important to you. Dress comfortably and you may want to add layers...buildings can be really cold.
Register quick, enrollment for this workshop is limited!
