A Deeper Look at Written Communication will be an action-packed day that takes participants from the use of low-tech supports, including how to create special papers, to the use of different fonts, spacing, color and patterns. There will be discussions on methods to aid in sentence development, answering “wh” questions in sentences and developing narrative writing-all using mid & high tech options. Best of all, many of these options can be found on all computers in most schools!
