Study groups at EMWP working to ease primary, secondary transitions.

In 2010-11, we performed about 50 hours of inservice work, and in 2011-12, we are scheduled to deliver about 120 hours, working with nine or more schools. This includes the establishment of two formal partnerships and two additional quasi-partnerships that have been generating multiple events in various PD formats, as well as generating work for our separate Family Literacy program....  “Writing Across Generations: A Workshop for Elementary Students and their Grandparents.”  In this 90-minute workshop, children and their grandparents come together to share in the joy of relating and making memories through writing.  Using picture books, drawing, and storytelling, workshop participants create snapshots in writing of treasured childhood moments....  “Preparing for High School Writing:  A Workshop for Teens.”  Facilitated by writing instructors at EMU, this 90-minute workshop is designed for teens who wonder about what high school and college writing will be like and how they can get ready for it.
