A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

I have a simple, yet invariably what I believe to be true, maxim: engaged learners learn!

Nothing could be a better example of this than when working with kids and writing. Students who are engaged with our lessons and activities learn from the experience. Whether writing a story or poem; an explanation of how they solved a mathematical problem; a description of what they observed in a science experiment; or the retelling of a historical event, if students are engaged with the task, they learn through it.

In this strategy-packed writing seminar, I have put together over 101 ideas, techniques and activities that I have not only used with my own students, but students in many schools where I have had the opportunity to work as a writer-in-residence. I will bring to you only those strategies and techniques that have proven to engage my students. In addition, I included in the resource handbook you will receive at the seminar, all of the materials I have developed and used with these lessons and activities.

My goal is to give you everything you need, and more, so you can pick and choose what will work in your own writing program. You might think of the seminar as a buffet of 101 writing dishes from which you can select just the ones that whet your appetite!

I invite you to join me and other teachers for an exciting day swirling with new writing ideas, methods and techniques. I can guarantee that it will be a day you won’t regret! I look forward to meeting you.

Sincerely,
Greg Denman

P.S. This will be a day devoted to over 101 practical ways to strengthen your writing instruction for powerful results!
