SIMĀ® Writing Institute 2018-2019

Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) Writing Institute

 

The State Support Team Region 1 is pleased to offer Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) Writing Institute, presented by Ginna Fall, M.Ed. The series will support middle and high school educators as they learn how to guide adolescents to master content and key skills in writing.

The Strategic Instruction Model is a comprehensive research-validated approach to adolescent literacy. The institute will explore the key elements of effective writing instruction and introduce an evidenced-based curriculum that can be used to teach students the writing skills they need to be able to express themselves effectively.

During this series, educators will learn how to incorporate writing skills and specific, critical teaching behaviors to ensure content mastery; design diagnostic pre- and post-test activities that target and verify student growth; and scaffold instruction to help students acquire, retain, and demonstrate knowledge.

The information presented will enable educators to align SIM strategies with state and district initiatives. SIM Writing Strategies were developed through research conducted by the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning (KUCRL).
