Dr. Charles Haynes, noted authority on spoken-written language standards, will present strategies for scaffolding narrative and expository expression for listening, speaking, reading and writing from K-12. Participants will learn specific word, sentence and discourse strategies to bridge sentences and paragraphs for reading comprehension and writing. Strategies will address mastery of genre and informational text, which often pose challenges for different kinds of learners. Participants will learn how to scaffold narrative and expository language, linking personal sequences within narrative development to essay formulation.

Dr. Haynes is particularly interested in “micro-discourse” techniques for building text cohesion. He will discuss implications for sophisticated interpretation of literature and cross-curricular content and present suggestions for using diagnostic profiles to drive goal setting and instructional plans.
