Description

Why Write? From Narrative to Argumentative - Three Part Series (Part 2) 3 Hour Session

Through a series of 3 workshops, participants will ponder and answer the simple question, “Why write?” We will explore the reasons authors write and delve into varied forms of writing. Because writing begins with us, we will initially explore self - narrative writing; we will then explore others of varied times and places - informative writing; and finally, we will explore the intricacies of argument in the form of argumentative writing.

Participants will discuss and analyze narrative, informational and argumentative writing and the many forms that these writings take. Also, they will delve into the nuanced forms of writings such as narrative and arguments…

Using the concept of backward design, participants will explore the requirements of writing on the TASC examination and engage in a number of activities that will ensure all students are aware of and can master the art of writing the essay on the TASC.

During each workshop we will delve into a specific type of writing and participants will walk away, armed with teaching strategies and activities that are applicable to their classrooms.
