Preparing Students for Writing Success—Free Webinar

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.
Participants will learn practical ways to teach the major components of a writing program that can fit within time constraints, because they teach more than one skill at a time.
