The Siena School is proud to share that our very own writing experts, Marian Carpenter
(English Teacher and Coordinator of College Counseling and Auxiliary Programming) and Beth Fabijanic
(Middle School English Teacher and Chair of the Humanities Department), co-authored a piece on modeling the writing process. Their article, "Finding the Right Words: Modeling the Writing Process for Students with Learning Differences" can be found in the National Association of Independent Schools' Spring 2018 issue of Independent Teacher Magazine.
At Siena, we pride ourselves in having a consistent, effective approach to writing across all subjects and grade levels. As Mrs. Carpenter and Mrs. Fabijanic write, "Every teacher uses the same language and multisensory tools, and our students practice vocalizing assignments and using color coding to organize their ideas across all their academic subjects." Be sure to read their full article in Independent Teacher Magazine to see clear examples of our educational principles at work!
