Writing for Reading Comprehension in the Elementary Grades

Presenter: Ann Spataro, MS
Date: Monday, February 28, 2022
Time: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Fee: $120

Learning to write effectively is an essential skill for children across all areas of academics and in every grade. When teachers explicitly teach specific writing strategies to students, they improve reading comprehension. In this workshop, Ann Spataro, MS, a Coordinator of Language Arts at The Windward School, will explain and demonstrate how to teach writing strategies to build both writing and reading skills for students in the elementary grades. Ms. Spataro will model evidence-based approaches taught in Expository Writing Instruction I with a specific focus on summarization techniques in opinion, expository, and narrative texts. Attendees will also engage in opportunities to practice, collaborate, and receive feedback by developing a lesson plan and writing activity based on a read aloud, with the goal to implement these skills in their classrooms the next day. Grades K-3 or remedial classes in grade 4.
