Writing in the Common Core

Great news! Teachers who did not/were unable to attend Writing in the Common Core this summer will have an opportunity for a "modified"session! While we will not be able to offer the full 18 hours, there are two options available:

  • Full day for K-2 (September 16) and 3-5 (September 13) OR
  • Afternoon session (2.5 hours) K-2 (September 5) and 3-5 (September 4)

Obviously the full day session will be the most beneficial.
