Transitioning to a Workshop Model for Reading and Writing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Are you considering a new approach to teaching reading and writing? So were we.
Three teachers from Busan Foreign School attended Columbia University’s Reading and Writing Institute and want to share their experiences transitioning to a workshop model.
This presentation will focus on motivations for adapting this model and strategies used in elementary and middle school classrooms.
Come hear how these methods have increased engagement amongst students with diverse learning needs.
