Drawing from Jennifer Serravallo’s newly-released Teaching Writing in small Groups, this session will show you how just a few minutes of purposeful, responsive teaching can have a big impact on your students. The emphasis will be on essential practices for optimizing small groups that will help you value each child’s language and literacy practices, develop relationships with your writers, teach with efficiency, improve independence, and more. Jen’s ability to break down complex concepts into actionable, doable steps will equip participants to be able to try out the ideas right away.
JENNIFER SERRAVALLO IS THE AUTHOR OF THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER THE READING STRATEGIES BOOK AS WELL AS OTHER POPULAR HEINEMANN PROFESSIONAL BOOKS, THE WRITING STRATEGIES BOOK; TEACHING READING IN SMALL GROUPS; AND THE LITERACY TEACHER'S PLAYBOOK, GRADES K–2 AND GRADES 3–6. HER NEWEST TITLES ARE TEACHING WRITING IN SMALL GROUPS (PUBLISHING MARCH OF 2021) AND CONNECTING WITH STUDENTS ONLINE, FROM WHICH SHE WILL DONATE A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS TO ORGANIZATIONS SERVING CHILDREN DIRECTLY IMPACTED BY COVID-19.
