The Writing Process Workshop

Did you ever wonder how to help the child who can never start to write their essay or who struggles to understand the structure of a sentence or a paragraph? This workshop will delve into the why and how these challenges arise for learners and what we can do to help them be successful in the writing process.

This full day, research-based workshop includes an overview of how the writing process and the brain are linked. We will explore the facets of writing and how to teach it with a cognitive, cumulative and sequential approach that makes it accessible to all learners. You will learn to mediate instruction, develop oral language skills to facilitate higher level thinking, and apply multisensory techniques for teaching the writing process.
