More often than not, students struggle at the sentence level far more than they struggle at the paragraph level. Teachers ignore this fact if they move directly to practicing prompts for assessments. This workshop, which is aligned with the Language section of the Pennsylvania State Standards, will focus on parts of speech and sentence parts as they apply to the act of writing. Participants will learn about the components of a good lesson and strategies for developing sentence sense in student writers. They will examine parts of speech as a method of understanding the way words interact with each other and sentence parts as building blocks for creating different kinds of sentences.

Topic: Behavior

Designed from the students’ point of view, a learning target describes exactly what students will learn during a lesson, how they will be asked to demonstrate their learning, and what will count as evidence that they have learned it. Learning targets, situated in a “learning target theory of action” (Moss & Brookhart, 2012; 2015), help students, teachers, principals, and central office administrators unify their efforts to improve teacher quality, raise student achievement, and create a culture of evidence-based, results oriented practice.
