Writing instruction is a hot topic. With the focus on writing in the Common Core State Standards and on the role of writing in increasing student achievement across the curriculum, writing now has a seat at the “big table” with reading and math.
As an administrator and/or instructional leader, you need to be up to speed on the new thinking in writing instruction. You need to be familiar with current strategies and approaches so you can support teachers and students in your school.

She will show you how research-based dynamic writing practices can help students in your schools meet and exceed the Common Core or state standards. You’ll try your hand at assessing writing and learn how formative assessment can transform students’ writing. Find out what you need to know to launch a writing revolution in your schools.
