The Digital Writers' Workshop

Getting Students Ready for College Writing Using Google Apps for Education.

Join us for this one-day workshop designed for middle and high school English/language arts teachers who want to implement the Writers' Worskhop Approach and use Google Apps for Education (GSuite) to do so! Never before has implementing and managing a Writers' Workshop been easier and more worthwhile. As high school juniors and seniors are increasingly being asked to provide digital portfolios of their work to colleges, the time is now to start a Writers' Workshop approach in your classroom! This hands-on, interactive workshop will be facilitated by Dr. William Kist, Professor at Kent State University, and Jake Miller, Technology Integration Specialist for Orange Schools.

During this day, you will learn:
- The basics of writers' workshop, including tools to maximize each step of the process, from brainstorming to publishing.
- A rationale for using writers' workshop in your classroom, including its popularity with college English instructors.
- Hints for establishing a Writers' Community, with combined elements of face-to- face and online instruction.
- Tips for smooth management of your Writers' Workshop with emphasis on the creation of digital portfolios for each of your students.
- New efficient ways to provide both peer and teacher feedback during the drafting step.
- Venues for publishing student work that will motivate even your most reluctant writers.
