Engaging Students with Writing (April 1 WOW Workshop)

The final SJVWP 2016-2017 Workshop on Writing will be next Saturday, April 1 at 8:30 in ED 153 at Fresno State. Our focus will be engaging students in writing.

The day will begin with Dr. Selena Van Horn, assistant professor in the Literacy, Early, Bilingual, and Special Education Department at Fresno State, leading us in an abbreviated version of a Photovoice project based on her research in a second grade classroom. We will then have workshops led by Julie Davis and Sylvia Sloas (Rivergold Elementary), Holly Fowler, Molly Yates (Bullard HS), Michele Helm (Palm Elementary), and Josh Walker (Coalinga MS).

To participate in the abbreviated Photovoice project, please bring 2-4 photos (on your phone, tablet, etc.) that you can access and share digitally. Take 1-2 photos of a want you have at your school and take 1-2 photos of a need you have at your school. We will engage in a collaborative discussion about the photos when we are together.

We hope you will invite a colleague and plan to join us! If you have not yet registered, please visit http://tinyurl.com/sjvwpwow2016-2017
