Effective writing instruction at the secondary level is crucial for developing the writing skills of all students. Middle and high school students, especially those with disabilities and struggling writers, need strategies for completing the writing process for various tasks, audiences, and purposes; reading and writing to learn; and self-regulation. Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD), deemed evidence-based by four independent groups, is an instructional approach that gets strong results. Come and learn what you and SRSD instruction can do with your students – and follow up with further support from Regional Office of Education #11!
This session will have a follow up Zoom session on October 11, 2022 from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm. You will not register separately for that event.
