The Nebraska Department of Education will be conducting a full day workshop for grade 4 teachers of writing.  The day will include the opportunity to explore and recognize the levels of scoring using the NeSA-Writing rubric.  The workshop will start with a look at the rubric and scoring process, move to scoring of actual papers in a manner similar to range finding, and finally, will include a discussion of approaches and methods teachers are using to improve student writing in their classrooms.  We invite teachers to bring a classroom writing instructional strategy or suggestion to share.  Each session is limited to 40 participants, two per school, four per district.

Sign in- 8:00-8:30.
Workshop 8:30-3:30
