Course Descriptions

Grades K-3 - Why Workshop?

Typical school writing involves worksheets and assigned formats and topics. Teachers who lead our workshops know that children want to write expressively, to write stories they’ve imagined or experienced that may be funny, scary, or sad. In workshop, also known as process writing, students learn to write the way real authors do. They can write about what matters most to themselves, share ideas with each other, and imitate the practices of good writers. Parents are invited to an informative and interactive free meeting, Parent University, that parallels what children are doing in writing workshop.

Lorena Lopez is a SJAWP teacher consultant, instructional coach and Assistant Principal | 6th Grade Advisor, Hoover Middle School

Grades 8-12 - Sentence Coherence: The Ol' One-Two Punch

“Teachers are always telling us to put quotes in our essays. Then when we put ‘em in, they tell us we did it wrong! I was better off having no quote at all!”

Fear not. But once you learn the Ol’ One-Two Punch, you’ll be an unstoppable writing force!
