About the Session

Teachers across Canada are continually expanding their professional expertise, seeking ways to support student learning inside and outside the classroom. Professional dialogue and professional development allow teachers to learn about new research on learning and give them confidence to apply some of the new strategies in their teaching. This workshop will present a wide range of successful strategies that can readily be used in a classroom or remotely by teachers to provide students with meaningful writing experiences that will strengthen students’ success in all subject areas.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
