Writing for life
Finding time for writing during the school day requires more than announcing journal topics and assigning bell-ringers. In fact, for students to grow as writers, they need explicit instruction and time to practice in both the writer’s workshop and the reading block.
During the keynote presentation, learn how to build lifelong writers by providing students with standards-based instruction that marries reading and writing and prepares students for success on standardized tests and in life.

Virtual PD on a Saturday??
Let’s face it—teachers are being stretched to the limit, and weekends are a cherished pocket of personal time. So why would you want to attend a full-day workshop on a Saturday?
Super Saturday is going to be super fun! With free digital giveaways and periodic prize drawings, everyone will be a winner.
You will learn so many practical, ready-to-use strategies, you’ll be excited to return to school on Monday.
Substitute teachers are virtually nonexistent at most schools, making mid-week attendance nearly impossible. Even if you could find a sub, attending on a Saturday means no sub plans!
Attending on a Saturday allows you to participate from the comfort of your own home.
Don’t want to give up your Saturday? No problem! Register anyway so that you have on-demand access to the entire conference after the live event concludes.

Teachers love the authentic, “from-the-trenches” insight that Kristi McCullough offers during her professional development sessions with K-6 teachers.
