February 4, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

This workshop is intended for teachers of students grades 4 and 7, who have previously been trained with Empowering Writers on Expository and Opinion Writing. This is NOT to alter the skill-building instruction that you are currently delivering, but will prepare students to demonstrate the writing skills within the time frame required. If you have implemented the lessons throughout the year and are looking for a comprehensive review on each of the skills while also providing test-taking strategies, this workshop is for you!

Participants will work through a 7 day extensive plan that will provide students with review and multiple opportunities to practice:

  • deconstructing prompts
  • making quick decisions during the prewriting and planning phase
  • using questioning techniques
  • analyzing responses in relationship to a rubric
  • pacing/ time management

Required Resources: Digital license to Texas Expository Assessment Review with access through the Hub.  Includes comprehensive lesson plans for teachers and direct-to-student videos to initiate each lesson along with downloadable student pages. License good through June 30, 2020.
