Why give up precious time for a workshop?
As good teachers, we all care deeply about providing the best literacy instruction for our students. With the new emphasis on writing in our schools, and the introduction of writing workshop into the curriculum, many teachers are wondering just how to proceed.
IWP teacher-leaders have extensive experience helping colleagues adopt and refine writing workshop and can provide many effective strategies and teaching ideas.
- Engaging and practical strategies for teaching writing you can begin on Day 1
- Balancing in-depth learning in the writing curriculum with standardized test expectations
- Setting up, conducting and managing writing workshop to build strong and successful writers
- Energizing renewal for ourselves as we work with like-minded, committed professionals from all grade levels
