About this event

Reading as Sentence Study in the Writing Workshop - grades 3 through high school

Mentor texts and touchstone texts are a great way to integrate reading and writing instruction in the literacy workshop. Many teachers use them effectively as tools to help students learn the features of a particular genre or develop an idea for their own writing. This workshop will go a step further and explore how close reading of mentor texts at the sentence level can support students' growing syntactic knowledge. The presenter will model practical strategies to help students learn to see the architecture of powerful sentences in ways that are fun, simple and accessible. Most importantly, students will be able to put these tools into practice in their own writing immediately. Participants in this session will be reading picture books, poems, youth essays, and stories that make great close-text mentors, as well as writing and collaborating. The goal of the workshop is to share a few new close-reading and micro-writing activities that you can try out in your classroom tomorrow!
