Purposeful Writers

Professional Growth Opportunities

How can teachers help students experience success with the forms of writing required by the curriculum at each grade level?  This workshop will support teachers in developing their understanding of the modes and genres of writing, as well as the text structures that characterize them.  Teachers will also learn how to plan for instruction of required forms of writing using a step-by-step process and framework that addresses formative assessment, co-construction of criteria, and the stages of the writing process.

Participants will:

  • Explore the use of mentor texts to teach the four modes of writing.
  • Identify and connect text structures to modes of writing.
  • Experience a structured instructional planning process and participate in the development of shared plans for the instruction of writing for different purposes. 

Audience: Grades 3-9 ELA Educators
