COURSE DESCRIPTION

This one-day workshop will provide participants an opportunity to explore the reciprocal nature of written expression skills on reading. We will explore the meeting of receptive and expressive language skills, learn how to present the structure of language to students in a way that is both systematic and accessible, and discuss how that understanding helps students think metacognitively about their reading abilities.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how the direct instruction of grammatical and syntactical structures of language improve reading
  • Learn how to teach grammar using a visual framework
  • Understand how making the writing / reading connection provides opportunities for students to engage their metacognitive skills
