This is the one piece that has been missing for me in teaching!     Christine Hopkins, Cypress-Fairbanks     It’s not often you go to a workshop and come away with so many ideas and tricks to immediately use in the classroom.  Thank you!       Lindsey Green, Decatur Thank you for sharing your profoundly simple and workable ideas.  I’m looking forward to making quick lists, writing kernel paragraphs, and ba-da-binging some sentences with my ELL students.      Felicia Maden, Marshall   This workshop is awesome!  Great explanations and answers to all the questions that were floating through my head on how to teach expository essays!      Tayler Griffin, Lubbock     I love that Gretchen is a Texas teacher.  She knows Texas’ expectations and Texas students.  These are lessons I will be able to implement with my 4th graders tomorrow!      Megan Baker, Montgomery   Thank you!  I am ready to teach my kids how to pass the writing on STAAR, plus some great writing strategies they can carry with them for life.      Nancy McClain, Cleveland   By demystifying writing structures and test expectations with kernel essays, Gretchen helps us see with clarity the simplicity and effectiveness of classroom writing.      Arcelia Leon, Aldine     As a first-year writing teacher for 4th grade,  I plan to use many of these strategies in my classroom immediately.      Olivia Young, Aledo     Wow! My students’ writing has drastically improved in just a matter of days! These strategies were EXACTLY what my students needed to tie everything together. EVERY student has been successful with EVERY strategy they have tried. They are thinking on a higher level, writing at a higher level, and in turn, succeeding at a higher level.      Kayla Shook, San Marcos   My STAAR scores are 90%! I couldn’t have done it without
