We’re excited to host an upcoming webinar “Students as Writers”: Creating a Community of Writers on Thursday, February 4th, 2024.

More about the webinar:

 

One of the best ways to inspire students to believe that there is a writer inside of them is to surround and immerse them in experiences of others’ writing – whether that be through mentor texts or examples of other student writing. During this webinar, educators will learn about the power of developing a true writing community – one that learns, analyzes, discusses, and celebrates different forms of writing together – and the positive outcomes this has on student writing. 

 

The session will answer questions like:

 

  • How do we, as leaders and educators, create an environment where students see themselves as authors and writers? In effect, changing our mindset from “teaching writing” to “nurturing writers”. Hear about real examples from our partners!
  •  
  • How do the themes of community, identity, and goal-setting contribute to student learning and growth as writers?
  •  
  • How does an effective, collaborative writing process enable students to become confident in the process of crafting their own pieces of writing? Learn about Schoolwide’s writing process, including the important focus on, and first stage of Immersion and “reading like a writer”. 
  •  
  • What does success look like? Hear from our partners about their experiences!

Writing Fundamentals Sampler

Schoolwide’s Writing Fundamentals is designed to empower teachers to establish predictable routines, where students take ownership of their writing, share work with peers, and learn to plan, revise, and edit. The overarching goal is to lead students to discover their writing identities, while finding joy and building confidence with the process of crafting their own pieces of writing.

 

Multilingual Learner Support: Writing Fundamentals include embedded support and strategies specifically for multilingual learners. Our supports are focused on helping students bring their background knowledge to enrich their understanding of the texts being shared, and later, guiding them during independent writing practice with adapted appendices and supportive vocabulary guides.
