Location: West Chester University

Do you want to learn new, fresh, practical strategies for teaching writing? You are invited to spend a week participating in writing activities, exploring your own writing style, and sharing strategies for writing instruction with your peers. In this course, you will experience community building, pre-writing techniques, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing activities which you can take directly into your classroom for your students to experience. You will also work with a response group to polish your writing and to take on the role of student as writer-teacher.  Connections to the Common Core are woven in throughout the week.

“The practical applications to our classrooms make this course necessary for every teacher of writing.  I loved this course."
