These authentic writing experiences utilizing technology will also help prepare our students for the SBAC.

In this workshop, participants will hear about and see examples of how teachers in CSSU and Vermont are striving to integrate technology into this program and other literacy areas. Together, we’ll build a collaborative resource to share and use with our collective ideas. This work also directly corresponds to many Common Core standards that address writing and technology.
