The Writing Standards require the mastery of several writing genres: opinion/argument, informative, and narrative as well as the ability to conduct research. Additionally, students are required to use technology resources to produce, publish, interact, and collaborate. Special educators may experience many challenges when it comes to writing instruction. Specifically, we will look at writing activities that help to build motivation and stamina, focusing on using a process that can support meeting the standards while “meeting students where they are.” Participants will explore activities and resources to support instruction for students with special needs.
