A Guide to First Grade Writing: Narrative, Informative and Opinion Writing Description: Narrative writing is often the favorite writing genre of both students and teachers. How can we improve our own practice of this much loved genre while simultaneously improving student outcomes? Informative writing is often the most interesting writing genre for youngsters. How can we take advantage of their fascination while also improving their performance? Opinion writing is often the most challenging writing genre for both students and teachers. How can we meet the challenges of this genre and build independent writers? Join us for this three-day series, or attend one session a la carte. Each day will focus solely on our first grade writers and cover several areas. We will work to deepen our understanding of performance outcomes. We will collaborate with fellow participants to look at examples of student writing and then learn some conferencing moves revolving around, "What can I teach this writer?" Time will also be spent on discussing feedback measures and how the implementation of these tools can help to promote student writing proficiency. Materials: Bring student work samples.
