Through our participation in the Georgia Milestones Workshop, sponsored by the Teacher Quality Grant, we have been able to implement writing strategies across multiple grade levels, diverse student populations, content areas, and school systems. At this session, we will discuss various research-based writing practices that have improved our students' critical thinking skills. Our goal for this session is to share writing practices that we have seen improve student engagement and develop critical thinking skills as they become more successful writers. Through continued efforts to find multiple pathways to reach students at their current levels, we are able to guide them to higher levels of academic success.
