May 30, 2014 | Education, Writing | 0 comments

Join the hundreds of HILL-trained teachers using this strategy to get immediate writing skills improvements!

This 2-day course overviews the evidence-based writing model Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) developed by Dr. Karen R. Harris at Arizona State University. Learn to use methods that have been extensively validated as effective in teaching struggling writers, such as formative assessment, rubrics, modeling, goal setting and graphic organizers. Learn to cultivate the necessary self-regulation in students that expert writers possess, and gradual release methods to empower students to own their writing. The methods learned in this course will strengthen your existing writing instruction.

Within a month, I had kids’ grades going up from D’s to C’s to B’s. It was unbelievable. I had failing kids getting A’s by the end of the year.

In my 20 years of education experience, I have never seen any set of strategies get the results we are getting with SRSD so quickly! I am telling everyone I know about this program.
