16179 Visions for Teaching Writing for Grades K-2
All children are writers but teachers must work actively alongside the child to move their writing skills to a higher level of competency. This seminar will help teachers observe a child’s writing and how to engage with them to provide that extra “nudge” to take their writing to the next level. We will examine the developmental stages of young writers and prepare primary teachers to know their students as writers. We will also look into the relationship between reading and writing and the importance of oral language in building strong young writers. Join NCCAT to learn important skills to apply when teaching your students how to thrive and grow into successful writers in the kindergarten through second-grade classroom.
