The expanded version of this very successful and popular workshop will provide a full day of Spice language arts training demonstrating how to identify and apply skills needed to teach and enhance writing abilities at the elementary and middle school level for PARCC. Language arts teachers, special-education teachers, and ELL teachers will learn a variety of techniques designed through years of practical use. Spice strategies have been successful in improving state assessment scores. After a review of numerous state standards, participants will learn and practice unique assessment tools, skill application strategies for PARCC prompts, and time testing awareness with encouragement tips. The instructor will demonstrate close reading and modeled writing strategies, unique skill teaching techniques, and application of common core and New Jersey's core curriculum language arts skills used in PARCC essays. Written expression including chunking and conferencing will be covered extensively. Join us for an engaging day of Spice Writing and you’ll be prepared to help your students become better writers.
The workshop will be presented by Mike Devono.
