Learning to Write / Writing to Learn will help you
unlock that potential in your students while reducing
the stress inherent in “the old way” of
teaching writing. Not only will your students, regardless

In addition to half and whole day workshops, Leadership
2020 offers a year-long program tailored
to fit the unique needs of your school. After an
session for teachers, individual classroom sessions
are scheduled to model the strategies presented in
the workshop and to help teachers with implementation.
E-mail and telephone conferences between sessions
support teachers as they implement the strategies.
