Event Details

Providing the Foundation for Writing in Grades K-5

This session, intended for elementary classroom teachers, offers an opportunity for close analysis, interpretation and discussion of each strand of the Writing Standards (text types and purpose, production and distribution, research and range of writing) followed by the unpacking of the Standards at specific grade levels. Using Appendix C, participants will analyze grade level specific writing samples that have been annotated to illustrate the criteria required to meet the Standards for particular types of writing—argument, informative/explanatory text and narrative. Samples include “opinion” writing, an elementary type of argument in which students give reasons for their opinions and preferences. Working collaboratively, participants will then develop grade level appropriate writing prompts suited for various types of writing.
