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, grade 8

“Amazing, we increased STAAR writing scores from 30% to 73% passing in one year using Barry’s strategies’

                                         Melissa Skinner, Principal, Charlotte,Tx

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

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

Naomi Fuentes, 11th grade

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 test 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

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

Pamela Anthony, high school, Yoakum, TX

This was my first time attending one of Lane’s trainings, and this training has been one of my absolute favorites! This is my fifth year teaching high school and many of the lessons Barry Lane shared were definitely applicable for the high school setting. Thank you!

Monica Sifuentes, 12th grade, Weslaco, TX

Great writing strategies. Writing becomes exciting for kids and teachers. Loved it!

Priscilla Escobar, 9th, Eagle Pass, TX

Students will certainly benefit from having a teacher who experienced the Discover Writing Workshop. This has been one of the best professional development opportunities I’ve ever experienced.
