This book study is designed to help you think deeply about creating and implementing a classroom rich with writing goals and supportive strategies. We will explore each of the goals outlined and the aligned writing strategies: composing with pictures; engagement; generating and collecting ideas; focus and meaning; organization and structure; elaboration and word choice; and conventions. Each week will explore new goals and strategies, dialogue our thinking with others, apply core practices from the text, and reflect upon that implementation. The online modules are designed around writing assessment and the implementation of strategy groups or individualized instruction with reflective posts and supportive feedback from other participants. Participants should secure a copy of the Writing Strategies Book prior to the start of the course. This book study is a blended learning course, two sessions will meet in- person and three sessions will collaborate via Schoology. Registrants will be provided with directions for setting up a Schoology account and access to the Writing Strategies Group will be done at our first meeting. Please bring an electronic device. Evidence of participation in all components of the course is required.
