If we want to know more about teaching writing, teachers must write too. Join us for six Saturday mornings to explore what we learn by being writers. Our Saturday Seminars feature classroom tested, research-based approaches to teaching writing. Our experienced TK-16 teachers will demonstrate how they teach writing in all subjects, use technology to improve writing, and meet the increased writing demands of the California Standards.
