SJAWP Super Saturday: February 1st for 8th-12th Graders

with Jessica Asher
Saturday, Feb 1 from 9:30am–12:30pm
14 to 18 yrs old
Optional: adults can stay or take a breather
$30 plus 3.95% service fee

Our Super Saturdays use a "lab school" model, in which teachers and students participate in the presenter’s workshop lesson together in small groups, generally including the following: mini-lesson on writing craft, study of a mentor text, demonstration of innovative and engaging pedagogical strategies, large blocks of time for students and teachers to write, and sharing writing in small groups or whole group.

While each workshop can stand alone, students and teachers can draw much more meaning from each seminar if they have other seminars to build on. Furthermore, registering for the entire series saves you money and time.

Event Schedule
9:30-10:00am - Registration in front of Sweeney Hall Courtyard
10-10:30am - Writing Games Warm-up
10:30-12:30pm - Saturday Seminar lesson led by Teacher Consultant


February 1, 2020: Learning From Yourself: Using Portfolios for Writing Growth

How can you grow as a writer without someone to critique your work? Portfolios! Come learn how to use writing portfolios as a powerful tool for growth by reflecting on your strengths and challenges as a writer and setting goals for growth. Bring your recent writing, or just be prepared to reflect on some past writing experiences as we practice the cycle of reflection and revision to grow in our writing practice!

Adults are invited to stick around and attend our FREE parent university with classes on how to support your child's writing at home, or take a morning to themselves after getting their kids to their classes.
