Workshop #2: The Writer’s Toolbox - Sensory Details and Writing to Perform

The South Texas Writing Project Workshop Series is proud to offer classroom teachers an array of Reading/Writing workshops that consist of lesson based activities reflective of STAAR exam objectives. If you are interested in exploring creative ways to teach Reading/Writing and make it fun – all the while preparing your students for the STAAR exam – then these workshops are right for you.

Workshop #2: The Writer’s Toolbox - Sensory Details and Writing to Perform

This workshop will help teachers provide students with the tools to plan, organize, and develop their writing. Part 1: sensory details – here, teachers incorporate sensory details to engage the reader intellectually as well as emotionally; this will help students invest their writing with emotional depth. Part 2: writing to perform includes not only the praxis of writing as a process, but the participants will also experience: working in collaborative groups, practicing and developing verbal skills, creating and acting their own characters, and using their own bodies to express emotions and to communicate their character’s message. This two-part workshop will engage and help teachers prove that writing that can be instructive and fun for students.

* Classroom teachers will earn 4  hours of CPU credit for participation. Registration includes all workshop materials.
