Foundations of Writing Workshop

A slide from day one of Foundations of Writing Workshop: Building an Understanding of Workshop in Order to Meet Student Needs and Common Core.

I’m looking forward to the next few days. It’s a workshop where old meets new. I’ve been leading beginning writing workshops for nearly a decade. I’m looking forward to making some shifts to include Common Core thinking, while at the same time holding on to the aspects that make workshop powerful. Tomorrow is all about getting to know Common Core, routines and procedures of workshop, as well as being a teacher who writes.

Participants will read an excerpt from chapter one of That Workshop Book by Sam Bennett. It’s a great foundation for workshop — both reading and writing.

Here’s a little more about the workshop…
