Writing Workshop (Nov. 9, 2018 or November 30, 2018): Engaging reluctant writers who can’t, won’t or don’tGrade levels: K-8Course ID: 18551006 and 18551007Description: This session focuses on how classroom teachers can develop students’ writing skills, with a particular emphasis on how to meet the needs of those who can’t, won’t, or don’t write. Exploring how to change attitudes about writing with five teacher-tested techniques along with engaging activities that empower developing writers serves as the bedrock of this workshop. Participants can expect to leave with numerous ideas that will infuse energy into their existing writing curriculum—ideas that creatively use mentor texts and which can be used across grade levels and with students of varying abilities. An added component is to learn about three strategies that all writers can use as they upgrade their first draft into a better, polished version.
