This is the best instruction I have had for STAAR writing since STAAR was implemented. So glad someone is looking out for the teachers!

What a wealth of ideas! Mr. Lane provides wonderful techniques to use in the classroom while at the same time being entertaining and a delight. I would recommend this workshop to anyone in any area of education.                                     Maelynn Webb , grade 4

I had no idea how to light a fire under my students–Now I do! I feel like I have the tools and confidence to guide students successfully on their writing journey.                                      Amy Francis     ( grades 9-12)

Excellent seminar. Every teacher/administrator should attend. It will change what you do in the classroom to help students become more successful in their writing.                  Jim Moon, Principal

I have learned numerous strategies and ideas that I am very excited about implementing in the classroom. Moreover, Barry Lane’s training is suitable for ELA teachers at every grade level!         Cicely Driver  grade 7

I absolutely loved this workshop! It was just what I needed. I am so thankful for the wealth of knowledge I have gained today! Lauren Webb, grade  3

My STAAR scores improved dramatically after implementing ideas I learned from Barry Lane, but more than that, my students now love to write.  Mary Burke, grade  4

Amazing ideas, simple to implement–yet so exciting for my students!

Amy Byrd, grade 4

The best workshop I have attended. The lessons are simple, but super effective for younger and older students.
