The Writing Center at CSRA RESA
Are you looking for vetted writing lessons for your students? We have created a website specifically for writing lessons supporting grades K-12 in Narrative, Argumentative and Informational/Explanatory genres. 

For example, there are power lessons on proving your point or supporting your position in K-5 Opinion, as well as in Argumentative 6-8 and 9-12. These lessons and all the resources can be used in their entirety or modified to meet the needs of your students. In addition, content area writing lessons have been included with more being added monthly.

Math PLCs – at CSRA RESA and Swainsboro High School

This hands-on workshop focuses on increasing rigor in instruction and building conceptual understanding. Participants will closely examine the Georgia Standards of Excellence and the Standards of Mathematical Practices to understand their intent and to effectively utilize them in planning, instruction, and assessment. The participants will investigate effective instructional practices (from NCTM’s Principles to Actions) to help increase rigor and conceptual understanding in their classrooms. Participants are asked to bring a lesson plan to use and modify during the session OR they can create one during the session.
