Catching the Common Core
WHERE: Spokane Conference Centre, 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd, Spokane, WA
WHEN: Tuesday and Wednesday, March 6 and 7, 2012
WHAT: Presentations/ Workshops
Jeff Anderson will be on hand presenting his workshop. Feel free to peruse his informative website, at writeguy.net. The last time Jeff Anderson came to Spokane, our brains surged with fresh lesson ideas to enliven writing through increased grammatical awareness. In our classrooms, the g-word became a call to creativity. Our students took word journeys that had them showing off their latest typed creations. This Write Guy has the right ties between language usage and writing spelled out with directness and simplicity. He zooms in on what students need most. His latest book, 10 Things Every Writer Need to Know, gives teachers both essential teaching ideas and mentor texts. You’ll leave the conference with a renewed vision of what makes teaching writing a valued art. His uncommon insights will help us surge toward the Common Core State Standards.
He will be scheduled separately from other presentations/ workshops so that all presenters will have the opportunity to attend all keynote sessions as well as other rounds of concurrent sessions.
Workshop presenters will have their conference fees waved, but will be responsible for their own travel and lodging.
