Notebooks are a key tool for an effective literacy classroom–they work for K-12 students, AP classes, English Language Learners, everyone! Writer’s notebooks allow students to build writing stamina and fluency, as well as support their independence. Many teachers begin the year with enthusiasm and plans for using notebook that begins to flag as the year progresses. This workshop is about how to use notebooks effectively and to sustain their use throughout the year, even through the dreaded testing time.
The October 8th Super Saturday includes two parts:
- two 75-minute concurrent sessions on notebooks for the elementary and secondary level.
- followed by a 90-minute session on how to leverage writer’s notebooks for effective test preparation.
