Professional Development: A Skills Approach to a Writing Workshop
Levitt, Roberta; Kramer-Vida, Louisa; Palumbo, Anthony; Kelly, Susan P.
New Educator, v10 n3 p248-264 2014
In this era of globalization, students need to know how to write well. Faculty development needs to focus on assisting primary teachers as they prepare students for a twenty-first-century world. Strategic curriculum reform and professional development can be achieved by partnerships between district administrators and professional consultants. Two university professors introduced writing workshop in the classrooms of skills-oriented first grade educators. The teachers' new methodology encouraged students to produce writing that originated from their classroom and life experiences. After the professional development, the teachers devised a month-by-month skill and genre chart to guide their instruction in the following year.
