NYCWP December 1st Workshops

On Saturday, December 1, 2018, join the New York City Writing Project for two workshops. There will be a morning and afternoon session, covering two different topics. Register for one or both! Both workshops award CTLE hours. Registration costs: $40 (1 workshop), $70 (for both)


Morning session:

Reading in the Disciplines

December 1, 2018
9:30 am -11:30 am

How do the skills needed to read a history text differ from those we employ to read a literature, science or math text? How can I help my students transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn?” If those questions resonate for you, please join us for this workshop in which we will explore the challenges of reading and comprehending texts across content areas. We will delve into “disciplinary literacy” as we experience how each content-area demands a specific and unique approach to reading. You will leave this workshop with ideas and strategies for how to support your students to access and master complex academic texts.

Afternoon session:

Authentic Student Voice: Writing to Make Change

December 1, 2018
12:30 pm-3:00 pm

How can we help students write with voice in an academic setting? How can we bring authentic topics into the classroom to unleash the voices of a range of students? In this workshop we will explore the power of student choice in identifying issues of importance and the power of an authentic audience for their voice. We will write as we would ask our students to write and we will process what is needed to make this writing happen in our diverse classrooms. We will also look at the work of educators who are successfully incorporating social activism through authentic student writing that can be applied to a range of ages and content areas.
