Patwin Elementary School, Davis
Birch Lane Elementary School, Davis
Two Team Members teach 5th grade at Patwin Elementary, and two Members teach 4th grade at Birch Lane (BLE). We aim to cultivate passionate, independent student writers, as well as to grow as teachers and leaders. We all teach Writing Workshop (WW) from the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP). WW provides students with meaningful writing experiences that encourage collaboration, perseverance, and a love for writing. Our Team plans to attend TCRWP Institutes to deepen our WW knowledge. We will collaborate and coach one another through modeling and observing lessons, as well as co-teaching WW. We will then train and coach Patwin, BLE, and district teachers interested in WW.
