Feedback form is now closed.
Write Now! will immerse teachers in Kelly Gallagher and Penny Kittle's ten minute daily structure for writing and revising.  Included will be explicit strategies for writing instruction including creating writing seeds and collections, teacher modeling, and flash revision. Mentor texts and other writing invitations will be used throughout the session.  Teachers will actively write, as if they were students, while the presenters model as if they were teachers.  Jeff Anderson's "Textploring" will also be modeled, using mentor text, as a structure for teaching mechanics and usage.  This session will be jam-packed with structures teachers can use in their classrooms tomorrow, and everyone will write!
