As a natural outgrowth of meeting the charge to define college and career readiness, the Common Core Standards provide expectations for what it means to be an effective writer. In fact, writing tasks will be used extensively to measure student understanding of the myriad of complex skills represented in the standards. School leaders and teacher leaders must have the tools to support writing instruction in their buildings across the content areas and grade levels. This workshop will prepare school leaders to support teachers in a concerted effort to build student capacity to compose coherent and well-structured argumentative, informative/explanatory, and narrative pieces with adherence to grade-specific expectations.
It was incredible to listen and work with the Educational Epiphany facilitator today. What an honor! I left saying, "That was THE most useful/relevant PD I have had in my 10 years of teaching...and to be honest, probably the first FUN one as well." Thank you.
I remember listening to some of your presentations. Awesome work and insight - thank you, Dr. Dickey.
