Description

The San Jose Area Writing Project is proud to once again host our Summer Open Professional Development for Educators. Each Summer Open Session is a four day event led by some of our premier teacher consultants and writing instruction experts. All programs will be offered for two units of credit at $150 per unit, for a total of $300. Participants can also elect to add a third unit by writing an “extra credit” paper and paying an additional $150 (for a total of $450). Please note that your Eventbrite ticket cost covers a materials fee only and non-refundable. Your official registration will take place during your program's initial session. Payment for units will be due approximately two weeks later, sent online to the SJSU Bursar's Office.

Integrating Writing With Your School Calendar

Teachers of Grades K-5

June 24-27- 9:00am - 3:15pm daily

We celebrate many holidays during the school year. Why not make them even more engaging? Teachers will take away writing activities they can use for major holidays and be introduced to great mentor texts.

Learn how to integrate some low risk STEAM activities into writing lessons. Teachers will experience how adding elements of art, practices from engineering and using technology to student writing can expand their students’ knowledge and improve their writing.

Building a purposeful writing plan across the year and using the cultural and holiday customs of your students will enliven your classroom writing. Incorporating art and enriching the process will make memorable products.

We will also look at how to adapt the lessons for all grade levels K-5.
