In this four-part webinar series, Carl Anderson will discuss methods and strategies that will help you get better at key aspects of writing instruction.

You’ll learn about these four aspects of teaching writing, each of which is essential for helping your students grow as writers:
  1. Setting assessment-based writing goals for students. In this session, Carl will discuss how to use multiple lenses to get to know your students as writers, and with the information you gather, set individualized writing goals for them to help you differentiate instruction for them.
  2. Individualizing instruction. In this session, you’ll learn strategies for that will help you teach effective small-group lessons and writing conferences, maximizing your ability to differentiate writing instruction for your students.
  3. Teaching with mentor texts. This session will focus on how to teach students about the craft of writing and conventions using mentor texts. Carl will show you how to this in both direct instruction and inquiry lessons.
  4. Teaching effective whole-class lessons. In the final session, Carl will help you hone your skill with teaching whole-class writing lessons that set the stage for the more individualized work you’ll be doing in small-group lessons and 1:1 writing conferences.
After each session, you'll have learned numerous practical strategies you can use right away to teach writing more effectively in your classroom.

And as part of the series, you’ll study and analyze student writing samples. You’ll also watch videos of Carl teaching that bring to life the strategies and methods he’s discussing.
