The Chicago Area Writing Project (CAWP) is celebrating 34 years of helping teachers, schools and district improve literacy instruction for K-12 students. CAWP offers programs in writing, reading, emergent literacy, content area reading and writing, assessment and more.
On July 15, we’re offering two workshops on Writing and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The morning workshop led by Golden Apple teacher Dr. Shari Frost will focus on K-2 writing and the afternoon session led by CAWP Director Barbara Kato will focus on writing in grades 3-12. Here’s the registration form. Writing and CCSS flyer – July 15, 2013
We are finalizing back-to-school workshops in late August focusing on non-fiction or informational writing and our fall conference on Oct. 4-5 will feature teacher panels on three Common Core strands: a) argument writing, b) technology and writing, and c) connecting writing and reading. As always, we’ll combine the “big” picture with practical, classroom-tested teaching strategies. Click the Programs tab above to find out about our summer and fall offering for Teachers.
There is still room in our 2013 Summer Youth Writing Camp for students going into grades 7-10 in fall 2013. The program runs June 24-July 12, and the extended deadline for the application is June 14.
