This 3-day introductory workshop focuses on the foundational sentence level strategies that form the heart of the WIT approach and that develop clear writing, oral language, content knowledge, vocabulary, reading comprehension and thinking all at once. We pay special attention to scaffolds that allow access to rigorous content for English learners with varying proficiency levels in English and for students with disabilities. This is a hands-on workshop. Teachers will leave with activities they can use immediately with students and that are appropriate for both in person and remote teaching. Appropriate for teachers of grades 1-12 across content areas.
