Get Better at Conferring with Student Writers!

Wednesday, February 2nd, 7:00 – 8:30 pm ET

Presented by Carl Anderson & Matt Glover

When we visit schools, we love being in classrooms with teachers, coaching them as they confer with student writers.  After all, it’s in writing conferences where the most important teaching happens in a writing workshop. It’s where the magic happens.

In this webinar, Carl and Matt will share some of the tips and strategies they give teachers who have been conferring for awhile and who want to get even better at 1:1 teaching. (This will not be a Conferring 101 workshop!).  Some of these tips and strategies will include:

  • Encouraging student agency in conferences.
  • Supporting student talk in conferences that will help you learn about them as writers.
  • Making the best teaching decisions in conferences.
  • Teaching into student strengths instead of deficits.
  • Understanding the difference between suggesting and teaching in conferences.

Cost: $25
