Based on their PD resource, The K-5 Explorations in Nonfiction Writing Series Bundle
Recommended Grade Level: Grades K - 5th

Invite a Linda Hoyt-trained consultant to come to your school for an Explorations in Nonfiction Writing professional development day. Learn how to expertly use the Explorations series' components to help students access, interpret, and publish informational texts. Participants will be shown how to use the series' monitoring tools and self-assessment sheets to craft instruction and document students' growth as writers. In addition to learning the principles behind the series and how to put those principles into practice, participants will learn how to:

  • create a physical space that supports inquiry and research,
  • foster collaboration and partner thinking,
  • promote visual and critical literacy,
  • use mentor texts to teach nonfiction text features, and
  • fit cross-curricular writing into their existing curriculum.
