This course addresses the rationale and management system for best practices in the teaching of writing. Participants will reflect upon best practices they use to manage the key components of community, time, choice, space, and response. They will examine the methods they use to enhance community building and the structure of the organization for their writing classroom. Teachers will deepen their understanding of the domains and the importance of a writerly life. Participants will identify the benefits of using a writer’s notebook and develop writing lessons from grade-appropriate children’s literature. They will develop a timeline for yearly writing cycles and learn how to create home and school writing connections.
