Writing is one of the hardest subjects to teach, but my favorite because there are SO many ways you can teach it. Some people like to follow a program, but for those who like to be creative, following the basic format for Writing Workshop can give you a framework and freedom to meet the needs of your students. The Writing Workshop framework can be used to teach writing in all grade levels and has been around for many decades.
As Curriculum Coordinator I was asked to create and provide a short training to introduce the Writing Workshop format to my colleagues. This is the PowerPoint I created that provides an overview with resources of the different steps.
I hope you enjoy!
