Helping Students Find Their Writing Identity Beyond the Language Arts Block with Patty McGee (MN)
March 1 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pmFREE
Join Benchmark Education Company and Patty McGee for an inspirational morning focused on Writer’s Workshop.
Writers in classrooms come in all stripes—we have storytellers, nonfiction writers, poets, and advocates. We also have budding writers who are struggling to find their voice or writers with command of conventions, but don’t say much in their writing. Our instruction must be as diverse as the writers we teach and full of practical, strategic modeling and coaching. Patty McGee will spend time digging into the hardest parts of teaching writing and all writers—with materials that will guide the way.
Stay for the afternoon and plan with your district, or spend time in the curriculum showroom reviewing materials to support your program. Our educational consultants will be on-hand, along with Patty, to answer any questions that you might have.
Registration begins at 8:00 am
Continental breakfast will be provided.
