2018 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

PC3 - Vocabulary, Sentence, and Micro-Discourse Strategies for Writing

Oct 24, 2018 8:00am ‐ Oct 24, 2018 11:30am

Standard: $20.00


Students with dyslexia and related language-learning difficulties often struggle to express themselves in writing. Sentences are meaning bearers of language, and research indicates that systematic sentence instruction improves the quantity and quality of children’s text-level writing. This interactive workshop provides an overview of structured, theme-centered strategies for developing sentence-level writing in ways that will then enable students to produce compelling and elaborated text-level writing, with richer sentences at the base of their writing.

Learning Objectives:

  • HANDWRITING/WRITTEN LANGUAGE: Identify effective practices and strategies for written language.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine effective practices for developing writing skills.

Session was extremely helpful at the sentence level of writing. Most of my students are stuck there. The information from the session was invaluable for assisting students who cannot seem to cohesive sentences or paragraphs.
