The Round Rock ISD 2014 Summer Professional Development Conference will be two full weeks of learning opportunities for educators from around central Texas. The classes listed below are only the beginning. Check back often to see what has been added. Round Rock ISD attendees, make sure you sign up in eCampus as well. The number is included in each course description.
2 Day Session - July 28th and 29th *Principal approval required for this course—campus budgets must pay for fall sub day. Using Katie Wood Ray's primary writing workshop book, About the Authors, we will dig deep into setting up and sustaining the writing workshop and writing process, delivering effective minilessons, assessing our young writers, designing units of study, and conferring. Whether you are new to the writing workshop, new to the primary grades, or an experienced workshop teacher, we are sure you will leave this training feeling rejuvenated with fresh ideas to launch the writing workshop in your classroom this fall. (In addition, 1 full follow-up day in the fall and 1 coaching visit.)
