Teaching the love of writing is the first essential step in the “write” direction!  Participants will explore a variety of writing activities aligned with Common Core State Standards to help their students embrace writing and realize it is more than writing for a test.  Participants will be actively engaged in hands on activities the can take back and start using in their classrooms immediately.
