Building Writers

This week is ending with a two days of training around building a community of writers and using writer's workshop.  Sarah Downing-Ford returned, after being with the K-5 staff last March.  She worked with Grade 6-12 teachers yesterday, and K-5 teachers today, bringing her wealth of knowledge and experience to our district.  Teachers who attended left with professional books to help them in their practice of teaching writing.  THANK YOU SARAH!

GREAT today at Buxton Center Elementary School!  If you're on Twitter, search #MSAD6lit for tweets posted today.  About 40 of our teachers spent the day learning and talking about the components of a strong literacy program.  They'll be back for more tomorrow!
