Description 

As you think ahead to next year, having a deeper understanding of how skills instruction is incorporated into Being a Writer will help you plan more effectively. Join us to explore the grammar and skills instruction in the program. How are grammar and skills addressed in the year-long program? How can you use the Skills Practice Teaching Guide to help you dig a little deeper into the grammar struggles your students face.

The Being a Writer program is a yearlong writing curriculum for grades K–6 that combines two decades of research in the areas of writing, motivation, and learning theory with social and ethical development.
