Grades K-5

Even in the early grades, students are expected to write across the curriculum, and providing multiple opportunities for writing in narrative, opinion, and informative text is vital to develop student writers.  In this hands-on, interactive workshop, the presenter will explore differentiated instruction techniques for transcription skills development and then transition into a discussion of fundamental annotating strategies.  Participants will examine elements of the three genres: narrative, opinion, and informative text. They will examine the specific skills to be developed for writing in each genre and practice with techniques designed to build the students’ genre-writing skills.  They will practice with the strategies introduced and take home strategies to try the very next day in their classrooms.
