FOCUS on 5 and the KSRA Conference

Hi Everyone! 

Kelli and I have been a little MIA lately.  We're very sorry about that!  We've been diligently working to get our presentation ready for the Keystone State Reading Association's Conference next weekend.  We will be presenting information about how to use our Focus on 5 Writing Menu to improve student achievement in writing.  Will any of you be at the conference?  If so, be sure to check us out Friday morning.  We want to make our presentation as meaningful as possible to our attendees, so we'd love to know what kind of things you enjoy when attending a conference.  What kind of presentation has been your favorite?  Do you enjoy hands-on activities, small-group collaboration, time for a question and answer portion, lecture with a PowerPoint presentation?   What can we do to help other teachers in the most effective way?

We are really looking forward to spreading the word about FOCUS on 5 since we have seen such great success with it.  What would you like to know more about writing instruction and assessment?  Post your questions in the Comments section below and we will answer them and share resources with you.  Below you will find the link to our FOCUS on 5 Writing Menu if you haven't already downloaded it.  

Thank you for being followers of our blog.  You have no idea how much that means to us.  We love hearing from you, too, so don't hesitate to get in touch with us!  We will definitely be posting more frequently in the upcoming weeks, and we'll be sharing some wonderful resources we have found or created to improve our writing instruction for our students.

Enjoy your weekend!  I hope to hear from you soon!
