Watch this website for our schedule of two-day seminars. Below are examples of seminars we’ve offered in the past and may continue to offer.
Conferring: Getting to the Heart of the Writing Workshop
The experts tell us writing conferences are the heart of the writing workshop, but conferences can also become the most difficult component for teachers to fit into their busy schedules. Join us to learn more about conferring with our student writers so it makes a difference in their writing and in their learning.

A two-day seminar for teachers of writing. Participants will experience a digital writing workshop through reading, writing, and reflecting on how they might use digital tools to support their own classroom writing workshops.
Writing In and Out of Complex Texts
