Event Description:

This is a 2 DAY training. Participants MUST ATTEND BOTH DAYS to get PD credit.

This workshop will focus on the types of activities that teachers can do to move their students from simple to more complex responses. Following a grammar review, several hands-on activities related to language complexity will be introduced and practiced. Topics covered will include basic grammar, transition words, phrases and clauses. The shared activities will relate to vocabulary development, sentence complexity, elaboration, organization and cohesion.

On day two, participants will be ready to tailor these same activities to their individual programs. Participants should bring appropriate resources such as an upcoming unit, vocabulary lists, and assignments. Each participant should leave this workshop with a minimum of six new activities to be implemented immediately.
