Peter Elbow states that original writing needs to be both "low stakes" and "high stakes". Low stakes writing is writing that is never edited and should be the majority of any language arts program. High stakes writing is edited and includes writing deemed worthy of going to the next level. We embrace this philosophy and approach editing with kindness and care.

Original writing and editing are important skills for self-expression, communication, and professional success. When we edit, we hep writers coordinate their skills in: sound processing, phonics, spelling conventions, word study, grammar, and thought organization.

In this class you will learn how we teach writing and editing to our kids. We teach you how to help your kids develop ownership in their writing across all grade levels. You will learn our most functional approach to teaching editing and writing mechanics. Strategies are appropriate for use with young writers through high school level. 

This class is best taken in conjunction with Laying A Path 3: Grammar & Mechanics for a comprehensive approach to writing.

Each Laying a Path: Supported Writing & Editing session is 2 hours long and will be on October 12th and 19th, from 2pm-4pm EST.

In the live class, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. Class recordings will be sent to all participants after each session. You must have a free Zoom account to participate in our class and a gmail account to view the recordings.
