Reading and Writing Fiction Texts
JUNE 12, 2023
Tomball Event Center
20235 Cypress Rosehill Rd.
Tomball, TX 77377
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)

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.
