Writing Institute


The Summer Institute for the Teaching of Writing at Teachers College begins in just a few short weeks.  This year, I’ve decided to take advanced sessions that focus on the primary grades.  I just got my course placements and was thrilled to have received my first choices.  I’ll be taking:

  • “Assessment-Based Writing Instruction: Use a Study of Student Work to Generate Goals and Systems for Recording Progress Towards Those Goals” with Carl Anderson
  • “Toolkits, Charts and other Resources That Support Writers in Revision and Writerly Craft” with Kristi Mraz

Will you be attending the July Writing Institute?  If you are, I’d love to meet up before one of the keynotes if our schedules mesh.  (NOTE: The keynotes will be given at two separate times this year and therefore not everyone’s schedule looks the same, as it has in the past.)  Please leave a comment below if you’ll be there.
