Limited Capacity seats available

More often than not, students struggle at the sentence level far more than they struggle at the paragraph level; teachers ignore this fact if they move directly to practicing prompts for assessments. This workshop focuses on parts of speech and sentence parts as they apply to the act of writing. Participants learn about the components of a good lesson and strategies for developing sentence sense in student writers. They examine parts of speech as a method of understanding the way words interact with each other and sentence parts as building blocks for creating different kinds of sentences. They practice with the elements introduced and model the strategies suggested.
