About the Institute
From Burying Dead Verbs to Crafting Perfect Paragraphs



The key to a successful writing program is to develop an interactive sequence for teaching writing. Students
must first take baby steps before writing eloquent essays. From burying dead verbs to writing perfect paragraphs,
this workshop provides participants with strategies that actively engage students during each phase of
the writing process. Since writing is a recursive process, a variety of strategies will be shared for each step of
the writing process. And conventions and grammar do count when teaching writing; strategies will be provided
to incorporate the teaching of grammar and conventions as they apply to effective writing. Once students have
all of the ingredients to put into an essay, the writing process will come together for them.

Sample of activities to be presented
• Conventions: capitalization flipbook, comma mini-book, punctuation fortune teller
• Sentence fluency: introductory elements mini-book
• Word Choice: burying dead verbs, embellishing a sentence, creating a Frayer model, mnemonic devices
• Ideas: writing in the content areas, creating pop-ups
• Organization: using outlines
• Voice: modeling through good literature, figurative language mini-book


In addition to the three sessions facilitated by Jane Feber, other Arizona educators will provide a choice of
breakout sessions: 11:00 for middle and high school teachers; 1:15 for elementary teachers.

Jane’s breakout: session Creative Book Reports: Responding to Fiction and Nonfiction.


Registration includes a $10.00 voucher that can be applied to the purchase price of a book written by Jane
Feber when purchased from one of the educational representatives on November 5, 2016.
