Launching Writing Workshop at the Beginning of the Year
We all know how important it is to start the school year with routines and procedures. The more time that you spend on these routines and procedures, the more effective your writing lessons will be all year. Effective writing lessons lead to student growth! But, what procedures do you need to teach? How do you increase student stamina so that they can write for more than five minutes? And how do you make these lessons engaging? In this session, you will be given your first two weeks of simple writing lessons that will get your workshop off to a great start. It’s going to be your best year of writing yet!
