Liven Up Your Students’ Sentence Writing (Grades K-8)
Monday, July 10, 2017 – 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Cost: $250 
Everyone Reading- 30 Broad Street –Suite 402
New York, NY 10004

Learn latest research-based methods for supporting all students in independently, naturally and fluently crafting beautiful, meaning-rich sentences. Support students in deeply understanding what a sentence is (and is not), how sentences work and how to avoid run ons or fragments. Lead students through a structured, scaffolded, flexible sequence of instruction, and see examples of how to differentiate this instruction as you go based on diagnostically assessing the writing students regularly produce. Avoid an isolated grammar focus by embedding this instruction right into authentic writing experiences. View sentence grammar not as a set of rules, but as an exciting palette of choices students can make to impact their reader’s experience and express their voices. Only as needed, develop fluency through short skill sprint games (10 min daily) designed to pattern in the use of varied, authentic word selection, sentence variation, and to practice sentence combining and artful sentence imitation. Put students in charge of their growth by helping them self-monitor and set goals so they develop the motivation and self-regulation expert writers possess.

This workshop includes co-presenter, Dr. Charles Haynes, Professor in Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Mass General Hospital and author of “From Talking to Writing”.

New Takes on Evidence-Based Reading Comprehension Instruction
 (Grades 1-8)

Thursday, July 13, 2017 – 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Cost: $250
Everyone Reading- 30 Broad Street –Suite 402
New York, NY 10004

Learn evidence-based practices that can turbo-charge your students’ reading comprehension. Research is now coming out on how students can internalize explicit, step-by-step strategies they can use in self-directed ways anytime they read, but particularly when preparing to write to sources. Learn the three most powerful practices for deepening meaning-making and critical thinking while engaging in reading comprehension, and how to support both executive functioning and self-regulation in our readers. Research validates each of the components overviewed, including formative assessment, coordinating multiple strategy use, text structure, modeling, flexible self-created graphic organizers, goal setting, and general emphasis on metacognition.

Self-Regulated Strategy Development for Writing (Grades 2-5)
Tuesday and Wednesday, July 11 and 12, 2017 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Cost: $495 total for both days
Everyone Reading – 30 Broad Street – Suite 402
New York, NY 10004

Make writing your students favorite time of day with evidence-based practices, particularly those from the Self-Regulated Strategy Development model. Avoid formulas that lead to hollow writing, focusing instead on ways to draw out rich craft and voice from all our writers, particularly those who struggle. The practices we will explore include mining mentor texts (written by both student and professional writers), inspiring a deep appreciation and skill at revision, using formative assessment, modeling, goal setting and flexible, self-created graphic organizers, as well as how to cultivate the kind of self-regulation expert writers possess. While lessons and full unit plans are available, this is not a separate program but a pedagogy meant to be combined with however you already teach writing in ways that will just strengthen your existing instruction. See standardized assessment data and pre to post student-writing samples that show significant gains made with these practices. This approach was just adopted by 40,000 teachers across Tennessee, a growing number of NYCDOE and independent schools, and in schools across the states of Michigan and Massachusetts.
