Ruth Culham, author of Dream Wakers and The Writing Thief, dropped by our office recently and she took the time to teach a lesson on reading like a writer (featuring Maybe Something Beautiful by Isabel Campoy), followed by strategies to practice student writing in varied modes, such as narrative, informational, and opinion.

ruthculhamAs writing instruction continues to evolve, I’m committed to ensuring educators like you are prepared to meet their writing goals. That’s why I want to personally invite you to attend my upcoming hands-on PD workshop on October 21st in Atlanta.

These will empower you to teach writing in a way that really reflects how today’s students are thinking and learning. Register today!

This full-day workshop shows teachers how to:

  • Use assessments to help students set goals based on specific traits of writing;
  • Give constructive feedback to children on specific writing goals that can strengthen their writing, revising, and editing;
  • Connect reading quality children’s books to writing instruction and assessment;
  • Show students how different modes (narrative, informational, opinion) intersect and blend to form interesting student writing—that you’ll want to read; and
  • Teach writing in engaging, student-centered ways.

The registration fee is $269 per person, and includes continental breakfast, boxed lunch, and a certificate of attendence with contact hours. Group rates are available for as low as $229 per person.
