Empowering Student Writers

Our highlight of AIMS Summer Splash presenters continues with Katelynn Giordano. Katelynn took time out of her summer to share the ways she works to help students in the ELA classroom to use their voice in the most effective way possible. Katelynn’s personalized approach to the teaching of writing is supported by research, and student feedback shows that the most important people in the classroom find it effective and engaging!
