Feedback form is now closed.
Participants will explore how to launch the writer’s workshop in effective and engaging ways. We’ll use a collective experience of “I’m a Writer Who” as a way to create community, confidence, early assessment data, and a strategic launch to the workshop framework. Megan will focus on (a) developing mini-lessons (in small group workshops with weak student writing samples) and (b) using writer’s craft to develop stronger student voice. Participants will leave with: a toolkit for launching and teaching within the writer’s workshop framework, strategies for going “off script” and how to do so efficiently, and an understanding of using writing samples to address weaknesses/gaps.
