STAAR Writing Boot Camp: Sentence and Paragraph Writing Strategies - Austin, TX

Complete Information

In this one day workshop you’ll learn writing strategies which directly affect students’ writing skills and can be taught to your students to prepare them for the demands of the STAAR writing test. This writing instruction should not be limited to the grades tested by STAAR, but it should be provided to students as part of a plan to build writing skills across grade levels. Participants will be introduced to the SIMR Sentence and Paragraph Writing Strategies to build their ability to write simple to complex sentences and to write paragraphs with a clear topic sentence, adequate details, and a conclusion. Teachers will learn how to integrate the SIM writing strategies into their writing workshops or their content.
