Writers are Readers
Struggling to get kids writing? Wondering how to encourage young writers to better demonstrate their thinking on paper? Does the phrase “written response to text” give you nightmares? We will explore structure and organization, tools and strategies, rubrics and differentiated support for helping students become confident, prolific writers who know how to demonstrate their thinking in writing. Written comprehension only works if students have the words to use and the tools to comprehend text. Examine methods for developing strong reading comprehension skills in your students and discover how those methods can be utilized to develop strong writers as well.
