Event description

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.


The Reading/Writing Connection

Teachers of Grades 2-6

July 29 - August 1- 9:00am - 3:15pm daily

Do you want to help your students lift the level of their writing while simultaneously improving their reading skills? This workshop is designed to empower teachers to harness the reciprocity between reading and writing during workshop and across the curriculum. Join us as we study what Donald Bear calls “the braid of literacy development” and learn to make our English language arts teaching more efficient and effective. As Colleen Cruz writes, “Writers read better” and vice versa!
