On January 5, HWIS held a webinar for parents led by Donna to discuss HWIS’ approach to developing writers. Read on to learn how HWIS is developing strong readers and writers in any language. Understand the approach behind the Teachers College Readers and Writers program and how it is being implemented at HWIS.
Donna was an ELA leader K-5 in Westport Public Schools, CT, taught middle school literature at Whitby School in Greenwich CT, and has consulted with multiple schools for the implementation of reading and writing workshops. Donna is a national workshop presenter and a published author of More Than Meets the Eye and On Their Way, books for teachers on reading and writing.
Writing instruction has come a long way through the years. A lot of the growth in our understanding of how to teach children to write comes from Lucy Calkins, a researcher and professor at Teachers College, Columbia University.
