Teaching Writing

Plus, you’ll know how to set up, conduct, and manage a writers’ workshop to build strong and successful writers.

Writing & Technology Workshop

Discover how to use Chromebooks and tablets in ways that will help your students become better writers. Develop your understanding of what it means to be a 21st century writing teacher and learn ways to intersect digital writing processes with writing workshop.

ISBE credit hours are provided.

Social-Emotional Learning and Writing Workshop

At the heart of this workshop is a recognition of the power of writing and reading to create classrooms and schools where social emotional learning flourishes. This workshop offers suggestions, activities, and dialogue about social emotional learning that doesn’t gobble up our students’ time but creates a classroom where learning and the love of learning are nurtured. And this workshop supports existing school-wide programs as well.

ISBE credit hours are provided.

Writing and Racial Equity Workshop

As effective teachers, we all seek to deepen literacy teaching and learning for students of all backgrounds. This involves developing our own understanding about the influence of racism on all of us, and using classroom strategies that support the identities and learning needs in the classroom through an equity lens.

ISBE credit hours are provided.
