What it is:

This 6-hour workshop will supply secondary ELA/ELD/ESL teachers with tools to build better writers. We will examine writing practices through the lens of language acquisition theory, explore engaging activities that will increase competence and confidence of emergent writers, and address ways to boost sentence and paragraph skills our students need to move forward on end-of-year examinations. Participants will walk away with ideas to incorporate into daily ELA instruction or to supplement the summer school curriculum. Most importantly, we will have fun!

Who Should Attend:

  • ELA/ESL/ESOL teachers
  • ELA content specialists
  • ESL program specialists
  • ELD program specialists
