Hey administrators, teachers, parents: Right now is the perfect time to start thinking about next year’s curriculum! How will you motivate and excite your students to write essays? Knowing where to start can be difficult, and finding the right tools to keep the program fresh and fun can be exhausting. That’s where I come in to the picture. Contact me for more information for a fully-customized experience for your school or your English Department. We will discuss your school’s specific needs, goals, and context, and tailor a program for you together. I can help at any scale, from one teacher who needs some mentoring to an entire school writing program. Contact me now to get your Professional Development opportunity scheduled soon so you will have next year’s writing curriculum covered.
It can be treacherous and stressful to prepare your students for the state-mandated writing exams. While “teaching to the test” is not the answer, there are some simple tools you can give your students to help them to be more successful when writing their exam essays. One of the common frustrations teachers have is not being able to cover all of the expository writing styles in depth before the exam. That’s okay–I have a way of teaching writing that can be used for any style of writing. Let’s teach students how to write, not how to fill in a formula! Contact me for more information about how you can get your teachers prepared to teach for any purpose, exam or otherwise.
