Conveniently located at the: Westmont, IL (specific site to be determined)
Rationale for Workshop:
There isn’t a teacher practicing today who doesn’t identify with the refrain, “So many things to teach, and so little time.” At the Illinois Writing Project we’ve always believed that you don’t teach writing in isolation. For us writing and reading are interwoven into the entire fabric of our classrooms, including students’ understanding of self and others, interpersonal skills, and sense of efficacy.
This program is designed for classroom teachers, support staff and school leaders of all grade levels, and will be led by experienced IWP teacher/leaders.
What’s It About?
At the heart of this workshop is a recognition of the power of writing and reading to create classrooms and schools where social emotional learning flourishes. This workshop offers suggestions, activities, and dialogue about social emotional learning that doesn’t gobble up our students’ time but creates a classroom where learning and the love of learning is nurtured. And this workshop supports existing school-wide programs as well.
