Writing Workshop
The goal of Writing Workshop is to create an atmosphere that students feel like they are real authors. This is accomplished by introducing the components of the writing process.  

Mini Lessons/Focus Lessons
Writing Workshop begins with a focused lesson that will address the content or the conventions of writing.  

Independent Writing
Students have the opportunity to practice and improve on skills that are taught in focus lessons.  Teachers provide support and help students while they are writing. 

Conference
Students individually meet with teachers to discuss writing process and discuss different ways to improve on writing.  

Publishing
Students will use revision skills, add illustration and present to an audience through writing celebrations.  Positive feedback will be given to the author from teachers and classmates.
