Workshop Details

Writing Across the Types

This engaging, hands-on workshop focuses on the distinctions across the types of writing emphasized by the CCSS, including narrative, exposition, and argument. Participants  will engage as learners as they use model texts and “write-like” exercises t o explore the techniques and devices — such as scene building and dialogue — used by accomplished writers. Educators will leave with concrete strategies for building robust cycles of text-based writing in their classroom through rigorous exercises that maximize writing growth.
Some of the questions we will tackle include
  • How can teachers effectively use “write-like” experiences in the classroom?
  • How do integrated, text-based experiences prepare student writers?
  • How can teachers use cycles of author study and mimicking tasks to build capacity?

Who should attend?
This institute is appropriate for teachers, literacy coaches, and district- or school-based administrators. Teachers from text-heavy content areas (English, social studies, and science) will leave with instructional techniques that can be immediately applied in the classroom. Coaches and administrators will find practical solutions to support teachers across disciplines and strengthen instruction.
