Writing Instruction

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.
