Getting readers and writers off to a strong start in fiction

starts with their ability to be clear in the way they hold on

and develop their thinking about plot and setting.  While

fiction has many nuances beyond  this, without depth in this area, readers can struggle all year not only with summary and monitoring,  but also with thinking with depth about characters, themes and the author behind the words. This workshop will help teachers connect and sequence their instruction with clear strategies to develop these understandings in reading and also how to move those ideas over to support students as writers of their own fiction stories.  (Skills supported: reading purpose, monitoring, envisionment, accumulating text, elements of plot, synthesizing problem to resolution, setting work, summary, cause/effect, synthesizing problem to resolution, using problem to resolution as way towards author’s message)




This workshop qualifies for Title 1 funding.

Make checks payable to Koesel Consulting.

Cancellation Policy:  Substitutions are allowed at any time; however, refunds are not given.

All workshops begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 3:30 p.m.  

Plan 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.
