Duration: 
3 days;18 hours

Louis Educational Concepts, LLC, owner of the Jane Schaffer Writing Program® (JSWP) will conduct four three-day institutes in each of the four modes of discourse over the course of the 2017-2018 school year. This professional development is designed as a training of trainers in order to prepare a staff member from a selected school or district to become the certified OnSite Trainers for that selected school or district. Dr. Deborah E. Louis will conduct these institutes. A designated OnSite Trainer may attend one or all of the institutes, but the price remains the same, as we prefer to have OnSite Trainers with a comprehensive understanding of the modes and their different ratios regarding the logic and organization of different forms of writing. This program focuses on empowering district coaches, deans, and teachers with the cognitive and implementation process of the "official" JSWP methodology. Qualified participants will be trained to deliver proven, meaningful, accurate, and scaffolded writing skills and concepts to their district’s or campus’ faculty.
