The Writing Workshop is based on
what writers do. Your child will be using a Writer's Notebook,
collecting observations, ideas, questions and memories. The notebook
will be a place to take risks with their writing. Proper grammar,
punctuation, and spelling will be taught during the workshop. Your
child will also learn how to draft, revise, edit and publish works
outside their notebooks. Students will have some writing projects due
each card marking where they should be demonstrating skills practiced
through the marking period in their Writer's Notebooks. At the end of
the workshop writers share their notebooks.
