Surprises questions

Surprises? Questions?

  • I did some Google snooping and found Brandy Price’s winning essay from last year. There are no words to describe how inspired and how in awe I am right now. I had no idea—the panel is to thank for the discovery.

  • How continually amazed I am (even more amazed) at how inspiring you all are. I’m fired up!

  • I want to know about other professional learning opportunities.

In this interactive session, participants will examine the Anchor Standards for writing in grades K-12 (including History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects) to answer these questions. The presenter will provide instructional strategies designed to help students develop the writing proficiencies the CCCS describe.
