The Literary Foundations course is dedicated to brain-based strategies for writing interesting, engaging compositions. Teachers participate in tactile-kinesthetic activities that teach students organization, progression, and development of ideas, including voice. Teachers are introduced to the vertical alignment of The Writing Academy process during this inservice. Teachers will be provided with strategies that are grade level appropriate and will return to their classrooms with confidence, as well as, a new sense of purpose in their own role in teaching successful writing. When teaching is fun, interesting, and engaging, it is effective for the students! By the end of this inservice, it will be apparent that the key to getting students to write like authors is teaching them to think like authors regarding transitions, voice, introductions, conclusions, and the various types of development.
