Workshop Lesson Format You are free to work at your own pace. Each workshop lesson will contain the following: Writing Quest— a short, fun activity to do as individuals and sometimes as a group.

Set a time limit and when time is up, students share their writing. Share Time— a time for students to read their writing from home. This can be anything they are working on or an assignment from a previous workshop.
Take Home Prompt— In the past, my students have asked for assignments to take home. Homework is a big piece of that fun. The weekly workshop is open to anyone. No one is too young or old to join in. Make sure parents sign on. The lessons are for you to facilitate with your kids!
Write for an Audience— Once students are asked for more of their writing, it becomes real to write for an audience and writing takes on more than just being a school assignment. Amazing things happen when writing falls into that groove!
Get Feedback from Peers— not just adults! Listen to Writing— Students get to hear what their peers are writing and remember that no one really sees the writing.
They simply get to listen and respond. The meaning of their words, which can lost in poor grammar, shines through and builds confidence. Offer Feedback— As listeners, our students get to look for golden lines and things they enjoy about the writing.
And they can offer specific ideas for improvement as well. Sign up for the Weekly Workshop Sign up for the workshop by clicking through the shop.
