SJAWP Super Saturday Series September28-November 16 for 8th-12th Graders
Our Super Saturdays use a "lab school" model, in which teachers and students participate in the presenter’s workshop lesson together in small groups, generally including the following: mini-lesson on writing craft, study of a mentor text, demonstration of innovative and engaging pedagogical strategies, large blocks of time for students and teachers to write, and sharing writing in small groups or whole group. While each workshop can stand alone, students and teachers can draw much more meaning from each seminar if they have other seminars to build on. Furthermore, registering for the entire series saves you money and time. Event Schedule 9:30-10:00am - Registration in front of Sweeney Hall Courtyard 10-10:30am - Writing Games Warm-up 10:30-12:30pm - Saturday Seminar lesson led by Teacher Consultant ************************************************************************** The fall 9-12 seminars will be led by Marty Brandt, whose forthcoming book on sentence-level instruction will be published by Heinemann in the fall. Saturday, September 28 - Sentence Coherence: The Ol’ One-Two Punch “Teachers are always telling us to put quotes in our essays. Then when we put ‘em in, they tell us we did it wrong! I was better off having no quote at all!” Fear not. But once you learn the Ol’ One-Two Punch, you’ll be an unstoppable writing force! Saturday, October 19 - Sentence Focus: Finding the Secret Agent “Another essay prompt. Dang, this teacher’s crazy. Where do I even start with this?” The answer is to find the secret agent, lurking there in the shadows of the prompt. Don’t see him? Let us help. Saturday, November 16 - Branching Left, Branching Right: How We Develop Longer Sentences “Uh-oh, this sentence is getting pretty long. Prolly a run-on. How am I supposed to know, anyway?” One way to know is to understand the difference between the left branch and the right branch. Once you know this, you can write sentences as long or as short as you want!
