We're pleased to announce a new 4-Day Introductory Series at Southern Westchester BOCES: Writing Is Thinking (WIT) 101 for ENLWriting Is Thinking through strategic inquiry (WITsi) is an approach to delivering direct instruction in writing strategies that leverage improved writing, oral language, content knowledge, and reading comprehension simultaneously to English Language Learners. They will learn how the English language works. Participants can expect to leave each session with activities for immediate classroom use that will yield improved writing, language and thinking. This series is ideal for school/district teams. Participation in this series requires a commitment to all four dates.
