~*SMEKENS - Essential Writing Lessons (K-12)


During a year when accelerated learning is the goal, it’s important to prioritize writing instruction so that the most essential K-12 skills are the foundation of a writing curriculum. This requires more than just showing strong examples and assigning writing topics. Students need explicit, skill-based instruction that demonstrates how to incorporate the most critical, genre-specific ingredients into their own first-draft writings. Using the college and career-ready writing standards as the foundation, this workshop for K-12 teachers will identify the core writing skills to teach per unit.
