I have been working for 15 years to compile all of my ideas into one presentation. This is a smartboard file that includes slides just for the teacher to read, but also many slides you can use for your lessons for your writer's workshop launch. These include writer's workshop expectations, many brainstorming ideas, lessons about writer's voice, and much more! For a beginning teacher, this would be especially useful and user friendly.There is a mentor text included entitled Eleven by Sandra Cisneros. I also have a reader's workshop launch for sale.
