Building a Culture of Writing

This fall, the GaDOE ELA team will launch a six-month literacy series entitled Collaborative Conversations for Building a Culture of Writing. This series will be an interactive online series designed to build teachers’ pedagogical knowledge while cultivating a culture of writing. Teachers in grade K – 5 and 6 – 12 will work through six sessions in which researchers and classroom teachers, together, will share evidence-based writing practices and show what those practices look like in a real classroom. By connecting practice to theory, this series will answer questions about writing instruction, engage teachers in professional growth, impact instructional practices, and ultimately, cultivate a culture of writing.

The series begins September 2016 and offers 3 tiers of participation for teachers/schools/districts to customize professional learning to meet their unique needs.
