In this engaging and interactive presentation, Mr. Van Cleave will use current research on writing to help attendees understand the demands confronting struggling writers.  He will emphasize working memory and the number of simultaneous demands the writing process makes on students of all ages. He will include an overview of the following components of writing: transcription skills (the motor component, spelling, and mechanics), syntax, vocabulary, oral language, text structure, and the recursive processes (revising and editing).  Throughout the presentation, Mr. Van Cleave will provide attendees with recommendations to help students improve their writing skills.
