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


April 4, 2020: C3WP Craft Moves to Enhance Argument Writing

Enjoy an interactive session working in small groups to enhance argument writing. Discuss and practice craft moves to support a point you want to make, use the expertise of another to validate your thinking, put your spin on a concept from another text, and explore ways to develop a new line of thinking in response to gaps or missing information in a text. Practice these writing skills to help meet the academic demands of college, career and community writing.
Adapted from Joseph Harris’s book "Rewriting: How to Do Things with Texts"

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.
