About the Session


It’s…..” about teaching writing and the gritty particulars of teaching adolescents. But it is also the planning, the thinking, the writing, the journey…...”

  • Penny Kittle

What makes the single biggest difference to student writers? When the invisible machinery of your writing processes is made visible to them. Do you want to engage students in writing in all subjects?  Do you want to empower independent writers?  What is interdisciplinary writing and what does that look like in my class?  If you have ever asked yourself these sorts of questions, spend an afternoon with a small group of like-minded teachers and explore:

  1. Recognizing what writing can say, do and mean to empower writers in all subjects
  2. What kinds of writing exist and better understanding the processes to support all students

This small group coaching mini series is composed of one afternoon half-day workshop followed by a webinar to discuss implementation and share ideas. Each member of the small group will share their learning intentions. The following session plan will be adapted to accommodate participant’s goals. We will begin by planning the writing process, exploring what writing can say, do and mean in your class, as a way to get your students thinking about different aspects of writing.  This is time to actively engage you as a writer to examine the process on writing practices and processes.

This learning opportunity is being offered through curriculum implementation funding from Alberta Education.
