The use of the Real Writer's Notebook in the classroom writing workshop was introduced several years ago by Ralph Fletcher and Lucy Calkins. Daily fine tunings to fit the many different requirements of state standards, district standards, and the needs of individual students have resulted in many different approaches to using real writing notebooks. This group of teachers and writers is all about sharing insights, strategies, models for writing notebooks, do's and don'ts, latest resources available, Six Traits, Step Up to Writing, Reading Instruction, and any tips that come to mind. Literacy topics in general are also discussed! We recognize the importance of helping children see the whole literacy cycle. We teach them to read like a writer and write for the reader!
Ralph Fletcher, Lucy Calkins, Barry Lane, Georgia Heard, Katie Wood Ray, Ruth Culham, Stephanie Harvey, Ellin Keene, Harvey Daniels, Joanne Hindley, Regie Routman... let's chat about all of their writing/literacy instruction expertise! Join us today!
