Event description

Description

Move away from acrostics and shape poems, and immerse your students in the authentic and creative experience of being a writer! Inspired by Lucy Calkin's Units of Study, this poetry unit is an ideal way to build a classroom community and get your students thinking and acting like writers during the first days of school. Through the unit students will:

  • generate ideas using vivid and/or figurative language and innovative expressions to add interest

  • identify elements of their writing that need improvement, using feedback from the teacher and peers

  • make revisions to improve the content, clarity, and interest of their written work, using a variety of strategies

  • produce revised, draft pieces of writing to meet identified criteria based on the expectations related to content, organization, style, and use of conventions

Classroom strategies for using a Writer’s Notebook and facilitating teacher/peer feedback will be highlighted throughout the session. Practical ideas for culminating tasks, classroom organization and sample report card comments will also be shared.

Suggested Grade Range: 3-8

*In the event of low enrolment, the workshop may be cancelled up to 48 hrs prior. All payments will be refunded.
