How can we begin to see students' strengths, and how can we leverage those strengths to address students' needs.

During a year when accelerated learning is the goal, it’s important to prioritize writing instruction so that the most essential K-12 skills are the foundation of a writing curriculum. This requires more than just showing strong examples and assigning writing topics. Students need explicit, skill-based instruction that demonstrates how to incorporate the most critical, genre-specific ingredients into their own first-draft writings. Using the college and career-ready writing standards as the foundation, this workshop for K-12 teachers will identify the core writing skills to teach per unit.

Strategies, techniques and resources for differentiating instruction, student learning activities and assessments based on learning levels and language needs will be shared. We will investigate ways to take your current lessons and turn them into differentiated lessons without lots of work!! Bring a lesson/unit to the workshop to use with the learning activities and you will have one lesson done before you leave!!
