ES Parent Workshop: Elementary Writing Instruction

ES Parent Workshop: Elementary Writing Instruction at ISB

Date: Monday – March 12, 2018

Emily DeLiddo will share how we teach writing at ISB and some of the research about why we teach writing in this way. She will lead parents through what a typical writing workshop class might be like and give practical suggestions for how parents can support their child’s literacy at home. Space is limited.
