      Hi, Megan! Have you considered one of the National Writing Project's Summer Institutes? It was the best PD I've ever engaged in. Local Writing Projects also do a variety of professional development over the school year. Our local WP site helped my former school develop our own writing 'program'--they didn't give us a binder, they helped us identify historic areas of need & we developed how we were going to address those. You can find your local site at: http://www.nwp.org/cs/public/print/doc/findasite/completelist.csp

        Amplify Education has a one day PD on Writing Using Evidence that was written with input from Fisher and Frey. It is getting very positive feedback from participants. Contact megraham@amplify.com for more information.
