High school teachers are tasked with an important challenge: teach our youth how to be powerful writers, access complex texts, effectively use discourse and academic language, and justify their reasoning using evidence…all while fostering personal growth and development. That is significant! Learn how implementing the workshop model in your ELA classroom can help support your learners in accomplishing all of the above. The ELA workshop addresses methods for supporting learners through whole group, small group, and individual instructional opportunities in order to meet the diverse needs of all learners.
