Welcome, Karen Caine!!!

Today I traveled to Goshen to hear persuasive author, Karen Caine.  She was brought in by the All Write!!! consortium. It was an amazing day with her sharing parts of her book: Writing to Persuade.  She gave all sorts of ideas and suggestions for students from 4th grade to high school.  The auditorium had around 150 teachers and instructional coaches there to listen to what she had to share.  Her samples, videos and stories inspired all of us to instruct our students in this genre of writing.

"She is a writing consultant who works with elementary and middle school teachers.Karen specializes in "breaking things down" in order to give teachers and administrators practical usable information and teaching techniques."

We were so fortunate to get to spend time with Karen today here in northern Indiana. Just another great author that is now part of our All Write!!! family!!
