Meeting the New Writing Expectations: Preparing Teachers and Students for Success
This event takes place on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET.
Writing is the area that has the furthest to go to meet the new ELA standards. In the 2000s, it all but disappeared from most elementary classrooms. Learn how to build an effective writing program that also supports reading development and content learning.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- Increasing the quantity of writing throughout the school day,
- Helping students improve writing by analyzing complex texts,
- Making the writing process a vehicle of instruction, and
- Teaching opinion and informative/explanatory writing across the curriculum.
