Day 1 (Thursday, November 7, 2024) The goals for this day are to clarify any questions you have about the instructional practices, and to help you become an “expert” in Keys to Early Writing so you will feel confident helping teachers with implementation.  The trainer will review key details about each component of the program.

Day 2 (Tuesday, December 10, 2024) The goals for this day are to help you understand and define your role as a peer coach, provide coaching techniques and resources, and offer suggestions for promoting implementation of Keys to Early Writing instructional strategies. We recommend that pairs or teams of teachers from the same school participate at the same time.
