  • Learn strategies to teach opinion/argument, information, and narrative writing with increasing complexity and sophistication
  • Deepen understanding of the California Writing Standards
  • Explore the use of mentor texts to foster a strong reading/writing connection

Breakout sessions focusing on writing instruction in grades K-2, and 3-8 will be included during the institute.

Each participant will receive or supply their own Units of Study for Writing in Opinion/Argument, Information, and Narrative Writing kit for their grade level by Lucy Calkins and Colleagues of the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, Columbia University. This is a year-long curriculum designed to help teachers fully implement the California Writing Standards.
