Teacher Writing Workshop
Add to Calendar
San Antonio teachers are invited to spend a week on a college campus and learn from college writing professors what college-level writing is really like. San
Antonio College in collaboration with the San Antonio Writing Project (SAWP)
is holding an Open Institute on college and career readiness in writing
titled: "Making Connections with Expository and Persuasive Writing."
Following the National Writing Project model of teachers-teaching-teachers, participating teachers will learn more strategies for connecting reading and writing and teaching expository and persuasive writing. They will see demonstrations of successful writing lessons from experienced San Antonio Writing Project teacher consultants and read selections from "What is College-Level Writing" by Patrick Sullivan, "Readicide" by Kelly Gallagher, "The Literature Workshop" by Sheridan Blau, and "Designing Writing Assignments" by Traci Gardner.
Teachers will also spend the week collaborating to develop a writing assignment geared toward college-readiness standards they can use in the classroom next year.
The workshop is free to the first 15 SAISD teachers who register, thanks to the support of SAC and SAWP.
