  • Presenter: Lisa King
  • Target Audience: K-5 teachers responsible for writing instruction, Instructional Coaches, Special Education Teachers. Teams of Instructional Coaches and Teachers highly encouraged to attend.
  • Description: This session will focus on the language of the ELA Writing standards, the development of writing from k-5th grades, qualities of competent and effective writing at each grade level and instructional strategies to scaffold students and move their writing forward.  Participants will analyze two types of writing (on demand and writing over time), note progression over time, annotate competent writing using the standards and compare their student writing to concrete examples of common core aligned writing. Participants will work in groups with colleagues to identify strengths and weaknesses of their student writing and set instructional priorities for students.   In order to fully engage in the professional learning, participants must bring samples of student writing.
