With new emphasis on writing – and writing workshop – in our schools, many teachers seek help on how to proceed. Topics covered in this workshop include setting up, conducting, and managing a writing workshop, balancing in-depth learning in the writing curriculum with standardized test expectations, and energizing renewal for ourselves as we work with like-minded professionals from all grade levels.

Writing and Social-Emotional Learning — Wed. July 10 – Fri. July 12, 8:30-2:30 (but begins at noon Wed.)

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 strategies, activities, and dialogue about social-emotional learning that doesn’t gobble up all our students’ time, but creates a classroom where learning and the love of learning are nurtured. This workshop supports existing school-wide programs as well.
