This workshop will focus on the elements of language and writing through engaging students in: writing arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics/texts, using valid reasoning, relevant, and sufficient evidence; writing informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas, concepts and information clearly and accurately; writing narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective techniques, well-chosen details and well-structured event sequences. Teachers will engage in activities to assist students in producing clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. As well as a strong focus on developing and strengthening writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose or audience. The use of technology, including the Internet to produce, publish and update individual or shared writing products in response to ongoing feedback, including new arguments or information.
