Building a Writing Program in the Elementary Classroom

Workshop | July 8 – 12, 2019 every day | 9 a.m.-12 p.m. | Berkeley Way West, To Be Determined

 Aija Simmons, The Bay Area Writing Project

 The Bay Area Writing Project

In this workshop we will explore research based routines, structures, and strategies for building a robust writing program for young writers. Strategies include writing to build community, writing as sense making, writing in academic forms, and writing for self expression and reflection. We will consider issues of equity as well as incorporate aspects of social and emotional learning standards throughout each session. Teachers will have time to plan and support one another by sharing personal expertise and experiences.
