Training in Setting the Stage is a prerequisite for training
in Informative Writing.

Informative writing is available to schools that have been trained in Thinking
Maps: A Language for Learning.

Participants will:
· Understand that the Write from the Beginning...and Beyond
Expository/Informative Manual is divided into two parts.
· Focus in the second part of the manual on multiple types of informative
writing and their specific text structures: to report information to
compare and contrast to inform by explaining whole to part
relationships to explain how to describe to define to explain cause
and effect.
· Learn about the more sophisticated writing to express why one
believes a certain way based on a specific and changing point of view.

While responding to literary or informational text is not “officially” included in the
types of writing domains, it is closely aligned with the expository/explanatory domains. Instruction in responding to literary or informational text enables students to understand how different types of discourse are “put together” and provides a scaffold that empowers them to construct more effective compositions.
Response to Text requires the comprehension of a piece of literary or
informational discourse therefore, educators will be made aware of exactly what is
involved in this skill of comprehension including what is actually written in the text
as well as what is implied “between the lines.”

Participants will:
Comprehend a piece of discourse from the literal to the inferential
levels of thinking
· Understand what is actually written in the text as well as information
that is included in illustrations and other visual images
· Grasp how the information is organized, as well as the effectiveness/
impact of the text structure on the readers’ overall understanding of the
text
· Examine the text with critical eye including effectively utilizing rubrics
for assessing student proficiency, the development of lesson plans, and
the creation of step-by-step directions for formal response to literacy
and informational text

Participation on both days is required
