New + Upcoming PD Opportunities with Moving Writers

Now that we’re into the real throes of the school year, the Moving Writers staff is ready for some professional learning! Here are two upcoming opportunities!

NEW! On-Demand Webinar Available NOW!

In order for students to learn new words, they need to be curious about words. But that doesn’t always come naturally. In this 45-minute course (part of our Language Field Guide PLC series), teachers will learn about why teaching students to wonder about words is critical to vocabulary development. You’ll also walk away with 5 activities for teaching word-curiosity, 4 new types of field notes that invite students to practice curiosity skills, and instructions for a project that extends this work in the form of a podcast. To register, click here.

It’s not too late to get the entire Language Field Guide PLC bundle at a discounted price! ! Register today, and receive the first three sessions instantly, and receive the remaining sessions as they become available this year.

LIVE Webinar November 2!

Reading and Writing as Climate Stewards

Climate stewardship can be fostered in any classroom.  We want to provide concrete ideas for doing so!  Participants will learn about text pairings and strategies for building a sustainability mindset through reading and writing.

 Come learn about

  • the craft moves of mentor texts that offer place-based calls to action
  • poems and stories that help combat disconnection from Nature
  • a solution-oriented approach to communicating about environmental threats
  • strategies for discussing the findings in the recent UN Climate Report

(This webinar will be recorded and sent to registrants the following day!)

Register for this webinar here!

  1. Hi,

    I am a member of the moving writers community and I believe I am able to receive one free webinar. If so, I would live to attend the one on reading and writing as climate stewards. How do I sign up for this? Thank you!

    Best, Anne Kelterborn
