The Scientific Method–To Teach Writing?

This novel and highly effective way to approach writing is applicable to students in all grade levels and all academic disciplines.

 Participants will:
  • Be shown a step-by-step process from topic selection through revision
  • Look at samples of student work
  • Assess and Acquire sample curriculum material
