WRITING IN COMMUNITY
We meet twice a semester to enjoy writing together. Contact Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about our next writing group meet up.
WEEKEND, SEMESTER, & SUMMER PROGRAMS
Supporting Young Writers: explore the Preschool Framework, TK Guidelines, the CA CCSS for K-2, and the importance that “play” has in children’s early development of reading, writing, and social emotional skills.
New Teachers Writing Collaborative: Participants explore and learn together about writer’s workshops, mini lessons, mentor texts, classroom writing routines, giving students feedback, and translanguaging.
Invitational Summer Institute: The summer institute trains exemplary teachers to become Teacher Leaders and work with the SJVWP throughout their professional careers.
WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING
“This taught me how to embrace writing so much more and how I can utilize what students are already doing to help improve their writing skills.“
Inquiry Group Teacher Participant
I will try implementing the starter frames to help my students practice communication and explanations and also to help my EL/Spanish students to be able to participate more fully in class.
