Writing Units Reminders





In order to create future PD that is built off of our strengths and challenges, please email me the 3 dates you will be trying the 3 mini lessons in the next five weeks by next Weds, 10/20. Linda or I will try to pop in to at least one of these sessions in order to get a sense of how we are doing.


By 11/20:


Read: The Mini Lesson (pages 60-69) in a Guide to the Common Core Writing Workshop


Teach: At least 3 writer's workshop session to your class using the new writing program including: the Mini Lesson, the Independent Writing, and the Conferring


Bring: 3 samples (only 3).


Reflect: Lessons Learned- What builds off of our previous work? What is new? How can this help strengthen our K-5 writing program? How does this program help with your classroom writing program?
