Laura Dreyer references in her presentation the Grade-Level Practice Guides found here: https://ies.ed.gov/ncee/wwc/practiceguides
Teachers always want more time to engage their classes with meaningful content and sharpen students’ essential writing skills, so why not combine these endeavors? During the session, participants will review the empowering potential of uniting content and writing instruction. Then they will be presented with a process to follow to create expository writing units on any topic. Examples of sentence, paragraph, and essay activities will be shared at a variety of grade and skill levels.
