The Writing Rope: Evidence-Based Writing Instruction with Joan Sedita

This virtual workshop is based on The Writing Rope model for writing instruction (Sedita, 2019). Many teachers of students in grades 5-12 do not recognize that effective writing instruction must address multiple components, represented as strands in a rope. This workshop will begin with an overview of how learning difficulties such as dysgraphia, dyslexia, and executive function issues affect students’ writing ability.

Critical Conversations and Considerations About Interventions

When a student begins to struggle or fall behind with their academic progression, we often refer to learning gaps as a reason why they are having trouble understanding the material.

Title I is designed to provide all children a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.

This session will discuss what learning gaps are, how they form, and more importantly, how we can help close these gaps and get students back on track.
