Dr. Jennifer Renée Kilpatrick, Deaf Education Department, presented “Interactive Writing Instruction: A Solution for the ELA Balancing Act” at the Florida Educators Deaf and Hard of Hearing Annual Conference in Daytona Beach in November. Her presentation showed how teacher participants have used interactive writing to cover and integrate all four strands of the English Language Arts standards.

This inventory, along with additional evaluation tools that she has developed, has the potential to impact both objective setting and instruction.
