Melissa Forney, EdD, will be presenting two one-day conferences focused specifically on the new Florida Standards Assessment writing test for 2016. The materials presented will be identical for either conference date so you only need to choose which weekend will suit you best. The ideas presented will include:
Writing: Opinion (Grades 4-5)
Writing: Argumentative (Grades 6-8)
Writing: Informative/Explanatory (Grades 4-8)
New 10 point rubric (4-4-2)
What are the scorers looking for
Utilizing a stimulus text for a written response
Conventions (punctuation, capitalization, sentence formation, and spelling)
Paper-based vs. Computer-based testing
Online practice test
These writing component workshops will be presented on Saturdays, October 3 and 24, 2015, from 9 am-5 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn Lake Buena Vista Orlando. The cost for either conference is $175. Note that these are the same conferences that we offered this past summer on July 17 & 24. Please register early as similar conferences last year were sold out. Seating is limited at this location. You may register online here at www.ForneyEducational.com, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling the office at 386-956-7279. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at one of these conferences.
