Writing Strategies for Language Development - September 14, 2019

Classrooms are filled with students who are linguistically and culturally diverse. These workshops will explore language features and support language production for all learners. Teachers will experience rich language writing strategies and tools to provide targeted instruction for various levels of language fluency.

Writing Across the Disciplines - February 8, 2020

Writing has never been the exclusive domain of English teachers. Teachers of all subjects have the potential to not only offer students space to make sense of ideas, but also to build comfort with the kinds of writing that exist in different disciplines. These workshops explore the importance of consistently embedding writing into content lessons across disciplines. Workshops will focus on routines, strategies and tools for understanding content and developing composition skills.

Voice, Identity, Access and Equity - April 25, 2020

Classrooms can provide courageous spaces for exploring collective and individual identities. Writing often plays a critical role in this exploration and provides a humanizing lens through which students can see each others’ experiences. These workshops will focus on strategies, protocols and content that support students to contribute their stories, share their truths and invite others into conversation through writing.
