Description

#CDLTStudentWriter

This two-day workshop will explore the how-to’s of having effective writing conferences with students. Participants will learn new ways of thinking about writing conferences, and practical conferring strategies that they will be able to put into practice as soon as they return to their classrooms.

Who Is It For?

Teachers, literacy coaches and principals who work with students in grades K-8.

Workshop Outline

The workshop will focus on key conferring concepts, the teacher’s role in a writing conference, and strategies for helping students play an active role in conferences.

Topics that will be discussed will include:

  • Why it’s essential to confer with student writers
  • Conferring principles
  • The three parts of a writing conference
  • Strategies for supporting student talk in conferences
  • Common patterns in student writing and how to respond to them in conferences
  • Effective teaching in conferences
  • Using mentor texts to teach in conferences
  • Conference record-keeping systems that are tools for setting and tracking our writing goals for students

Throughout the workshop, participants will see and discuss videos of writing conferences with students that will give them a clear image of effective conferring. Participants will also role-play common conference scenarios.
