WRITING WITH KIDS: Real Writing With Real Results

Language Arts

Inspire great writing from your students with writing workshop tools and techniques that provide structure, content, and increased confidence in your own writing and teaching. In this course you'll join writer and children's author Deb Lund who was already instructing teachers about writing with kids when the text we'll use by Lucy Calkins, The Art of Teaching Writing, was first published in the mid-1980's. Become a mentor for your students and model the writing process as you explore fiction, memoir, essay, and poetry writing together. This comprehensive course will help give you the excitement you've longed for in your writing teaching.

Appropriate for teachers of grades K-12. The Calkins text, you will find in the Required Text section.  Just click on the picture below for Lucy Calkins book, The Art of Teaching Writing,  and click on this link for Deb Lund's  Writing With Kids  PDF.

Deb Lund is a superb instructor. Her responses to my postings of assignments were well thought out and helpful. I would definitely take another class from her. Thanks for the opportunity to get some needed credit hours for my recertification. Nancy Hail
