The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. In this introductory session, master teachers will discuss principles of writing instruction and give examples of how they instruct students to write both formally and informally. You will see the teachers in their classrooms, where you can observe how they work with their students and how they tie their lessons to local, state, and national standards. By developing a clear understanding of what needs to be accomplished, these teachers are able to anticipate developing needs as well as plan for productive instruction throughout the school year.
