Focused exclusively on sound and research-based writing strategy, participants will be introduced to research as it promotes writing strategy across all content areas. They’ll learn the scaffolds behind them that aid students in the important transition process across all other content areas. Intentional, consistent and rigorous teaching of reading and writing strategy as it continues to improve student achievement will engage the 90/90/90 principled approach.
