Elementary School Beginning Writer's Workshop Institute - Sacramento, CAWhen: Mon Jul 11th 2011 - Thu Jul 14th 2011
Time: 8:00 AM PDT
Ends: 4:00 PM PDT
Teachers, coaches, and administrators will spend half a day in one of three large group sections (Grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8). For the other half of the day, they will meet in small writing workshops. In the large group section, the work will center on the instructional core: planning, implementing, and launching the year in Writing Workshop. Participants will learn how to construct mini lessons, ways to confer with students about their writing, and how to assess student work to inform instruction. This focus has been shown to improve teaching practice, which in turn, increases student achievement. In the small writing workshop, participants will nourish their own writing lives in order to become better teachers of writing. They will generate ideas, write, and then share their writing in order to deepen their knowledge of the writing process.
