45th Spring Symposium with Dr. Charles Haynes: From Talking to Writing Word and Sentence-Level Strategies that Support Narrative and Expository Writing

This online interactive presentation will lead educators through supporting all learners with vocabulary and writing skills. Engaging, hands-on self-regulation strategies that tap semantic feature analysis to expand vocabulary and sentence skills will be described. These techniques leverage listening, speaking, reading and writing modalities, helpful for all learners but essential for those with language-based learning difficulties. The importance of these strategies for micro-discourse and discourse-level tasks are described and will be elaborated on during the day and an outline of a developmentally based instructional sequence of sentence patterns will be provided.

You will:
Learn evidence based writing strategies you can use with your students the next day!
Increase your own knowledge of writing strategies
Teach ALL students to write including struggling writers
Learn word, sentence,(micro-discourse) and text level techniques
