Writing Workshop for Educators

Writing the World: Composition in the Content Areas

February 11, 2012
8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Interfaith Chapel - River Level
(weather backup date: March 3, 2012)

Sponsored by the Genesee Valley Writing Project

Writing does not take place in isolation nor does it take place in one specific content area. Writing happens in all subjects from science to social studies to math in both elementary and secondary classrooms. As our schools move to the Common Core, writing becomes more integrated and cross-curricular. Often times, writing is not incorporated into teachers’ curriculum because the teaching of writing is unfamiliar territory and can be quite daunting. This workshop features four sessions for educators that explores composition in different ways that can extend to various content areas.

Cost of the program is $35. You will receive 3 professional development hours upon completion. Registration deadline is February 8.
