About the webinar

This webinar provides an introduction to the Writing Workshop - a predictable framework designed to provide the perfect combination of whole-class, small-group and one-on-one instruction, along with ample opportunities for independent practice.


The following topics will be covered in this webinar:

  • Writer’s workshop overview and purpose
  • The structure of the workshop- including the components of the mini lesson
  • Conferring and small group explicit instruction
  • Resources that have made a difference to the how of teaching writing​
