Class Description: Participants of this workshop will receive an Empowering Writers Comprehensive Expository Writing Guide (grades 6-8). You will gain a stronger understanding of the key characteristics of expository writing as well as a proven, practical, research-based methodology that works in the real world of the classroom. Participants will come away with specific lesson plans with clear objectives that empower you to understand a variety of expository writing challenges such as the informational essay/report, the "how to" piece, compare contrast, and response to text. You will explore the reading-writing connection by analyzing and annotating the organizational structure, learn specific strategies for crafting broad yet distinct main ideas, generating powerful supporting detail, compelling introductions and effective conclusions. You will learn how to teach research skills, how to cite from multiple sources and assimilate this information seamlessly into the writing from Empowering Writers.
