IMPORTANT UPDATE (Fall 2022): As I learn more about the science of reading and writing, I have come to the conclusion that writing workshop does not typically include enough direct, explicit instruction. I am spending the next year researching this topic and will update my resources accordingly. Please know that this post was written before I came to this understanding.
Have you been watching our free video series about teaching writing in K-2?
So far we’ve shared …
- What K-2 writers need to know
- How to engage young writers
- How to get started at the beginning of the year
- Tips for helping learners move from drawing to writing
Today it’s time to get specific about how we meet each writer’s needs. Is it really possible to have an individualized approach with a roomful of learners?
Yes! And it’s not as complicated as you might think. Today’s video tells you how.
Don’t miss the rest of the series!
Thank you so much for this writing workshop! I’ve been teaching for many years and I’ve used several writing programs but I’ve always had to take lessons from the different programs to make it work in my classroom. Your workshops are very concise and easy to follow. I’m looking forward to seeing more in October!
Thanks so much for your feedback, Alana! We’re very excited to offer the full course in October!
