Here is an update from Corbett Harrison. It contains some great information for teachers on teaching writing...especially the resources he used during a recent workshops in Texas. Thank you, Corbitt. Readers - Enjoy!

Summer is coming to a close...sigh...
I am officially home after speaking and facilitating workshops at two Texas literacy workshops.  Thank you to both Regions 9 and 15 for bringing me in to speak to your wonderful, eager teachers.  The handouts for all four days' worth of sessions are still at my website's homepage (, and they will be there until the end of this month.  I designed them to be--more or less--self-navigating as you explore the topics we covered and the resources I shared to complement those topics.  Every link in the online documents will take you to a website where additional support/ideas/sample work can be explored.  And in case you're in a hurry, I'll share with you the five most popular topics/lessons we explored in Texas:
NEWS!  Coming the first week of August!
A brand new lesson of the month, AS WELL AS complimentary access to the introductory materials for our two new products for this summer:
