Register today for Why Didn't Anyone Ever Teach Me This? - Grades 3-12
June 17-20

This is one of the first things that teachers say when they take writing classes that focus on their personal practice. There is a gap between what is taught in schools and the trade secrets that successful writers use professionally. This class will close that gap and share tried and true lessons that come straight out of postgraduate writing courses, all of which have been used with students in grades 3-12.

Register today for The Misunderstood Magic of Annotation - Grades 9-12
June 10-13
Annotation is magic – it’s a powerhouse tool for reading, writing, and revising. We will examine the myths surrounding annotation, explore multiple dynamic methods of annotation, including ways to integrate technology and voice recording. We’ll explore how to use annotation to deepen and challenge our thinking. Then we’ll then dive into how to teach students to use annotation as a transformational revision tool to improve their own writing.

"Laugh and the World Laughs with You": Engaging Student Writers through the Writing of Humor
For 6-12 Grade Teachers*
Teachers, learn how to inspire students to enjoy the writing of humorous pieces using a mentor text and mini-lessons on the literary features that enhance humorous writing. Middle and High School students often read and write very serious pieces throughout the academic year, and I have found that students look forward to an opportunity to both read and write in a humorous context as well. Models inspire them to do so.
