Through the gradual release of responsibility model, teachers learn how Jane’s prewriting strategies teach students that “Writing is about Thinking.” Scaffolding of skills starts with student-centered terminology, color-coding, and Web-off-the-Word™, Schaffer’s breakthrough approach to commentary and vocabulary development. The thinking and writing process continues with editing, revising, and proofing techniques. From writing an effective prompt to common terminology to cognitive processes to final draft essays, our various modules are designed to assist all teachers, both English language arts (ELA) teachers and non-ELA teachers with strategies and techniques that yield successful writers and the added bonus: close readers! Woven throughout our workshops are also close reading strategies, because we all know that writing and reading go hand-in-hand. Private and customized workshops are also available.
