Beyond the 5-Paragraph Theme: A Free Workshop for K-12 Teachers of Writing.
This workshop, organized by UVa’s Center for the Liberal Arts, to be held at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities on Saturday, April 12, will focus on a range of approaches to the teaching of writing that may serve students well in school, in college, and in their careers. More specifically, the workshop will explore a variety of ways in which teachers can help students move beyond the five-paragraph essay (while not forgetting its uses) and into forms of writing that deepen students’ ability to think critically and creatively.
