During this workshop, Alice Nine will show you how to use four powerful sentence writing strategies to develop student composition skills. The thinking habits, craft moves, and editing learned when writing small will lift the level of all student writing. Alice will show you how to use BaDa…sentences, Zoom-In / Zoom-Out, Pitchforking, and Ape the Authors. These strategies can easily be repeated and incorporated into any writing program.
Small Writing is designed for primary grades and aligns with Strand 6 in coming “new” ELAR TEKS.

A one-day workshop day.
“Small Writing” is a Growing Strong Writers workshop.
Growing Strong Writers Workshop Series with Alice Nine is attentive to the importance of daily writing practice, the complex demands of learning English, and a desire to cultivate a love for writing.
These workshops offer super simple, no nonsense, can-use-it-tomorrow routines and strategies. Workshops are interactive with teachers doing the work of a student to step-by-step experience the routines themselves, to examine routine procedures and management, and to clarify, connect, and expand personal knowledge. Alice also shares practical ideas for adapting routines to meet diverse student needs and the demands of writing across core curriculum.
Other Growing Strong Writer workshop titles: Writing with Authors, How We Write, Sentence Combining, Poetry Fridays, Craft Moves, Morning Pages.
