A great way to engage students is with collaborative projects that align to Common Core standards. In this webinar, Erin Klein shares a few projects she did with her second grade class to dig deeper into the Common Core. Understanding the need to bring students to a higher level and encourage critical thinking while still maintaining a stress-free, fun environment, Klein offers strategies to achieve this workshop model. As a member of The National Writing Project, Klein emphasizes the importance of writing as a process and stresses the importance of collaboration. You'll see two writers' workshop projects her class published while they worked together to support each others' learning.

I love the idea for integrating art by having students research an artist and then make their own interpretation of the artist's work!
Thank you for a great webinar in language arts.
