Increasing Energy and Engagement for All Writers
Young children are capable of incredible thinking, which can be seen in their writing when they see themselves as writers and when adults honor children’s approximations of writing. Using video clips and writing samples, participants will examine key beliefs about young writers. This session will provide participants with practical, developmentally appropriate intervention strategies that support young children as writers. In addition, participants will learn how these beliefs about young writers translate into instructional practices in early childhood classrooms, both in terms of a daily writing workshop and planning units of study across a year.
A copy of Matt Glover’s book – Engaging Young Writers will be provided with registration cost.
