    12/06/2018 08:30:00

  • Location: Visalia
  • Address: 7000 W Doe Ave, Suite A Willow Rm

Instead of having students chant grammar rules, complete countless worksheets, or correct endless error-filled sentences, learn how to invite young writers to explore conventions as special effects devices that activate meaning. Gain practical knowledge in teaching students how to study authentic texts and come to recognize “patterns of power” — the essential grammar conventions that readers and writers require to make meaning.

In just ten minutes a day, your students can learn how language works in reading
and writing.

Participants will receive the book, Patterns of Power: Inviting Young Writers to the Conventions of Language by Jeff Anderson. This practical resource can be put into use immediately to teach meaningful language learning that sticks.
