Enseignons l’écriture ensemble is an affordable 7-week course, created for French primary teachers, focused on getting started with Writer’s Workshop with your maternelle or grade 1 students!
My writing block has been my favourite block of the day for years, and I’m finally ready to share what I’ve trialled-and-errored with you!
I’ll provide the resources, the answers to your questions, video trainings, and checklists and challenge sheets to keep you on track and help you become the best teacher you can be – without the overwhelm and burnout that normally goes along with it.
NOTE: You are purchasing this TeachAlong™ to go through self-paced, on your own. Buying the TeachAlong™ here will not guarantee that you’re purchasing the TeachAlong™ during a live run.

I’ve structured this TeachAlong™ in three blocks. Here’s the breakdown:
In Block 1, “Let’s Get Started!”, your first Videos Vault + Resources Vault is open. I’ll explain what Writer’s Workshop is (and what it isn’t!), the components of Writer’s Workshop, the components of the writing process, what materials you need to get started, and more. By the end of this block, you’ll have a solid understanding of Writer’s Workshop to build on as you start implementing it! You’ll also have the opportunity to get your resources prepped to begin teaching the following week.
In Block 2, “Let’s Teach!,” I’ll give you all my best tips for putting Writer’s Workshop into action in your maternelle or première année classroom. We will start working through the lessons with our students, and I’ll give you quick weekly videos to help set you up for success and go over in more detail what we will be teaching each week.
In Block 3, “Let’s Keep Going!,” I’ll explain exactly how you can set yourself up for success with continuing Writer’s Workshop long-term. This includes diving into writing conferences, writing evaluations, and more – including eight more weeks of scripted lessons!
Q: What does it mean that the TeachAlong™ is “self-paced”?
A: When I say “self-paced,” I mean that you will go through this course independently. I do run this course live every year, but in order to access the live run, you need to be a member of my Enseignons ensemble membership at that time. If you’re purchasing the course here, then you can work through the videos, workbooks, and weekly overviews at your own pace!
Q: What if I already own a lot of your resources? Will it still be worth it?
A: In a word, YES! My goal is to make sure that it will be worth it for anyone who wants to join. I aim to price my TeachAlongs™ so that they’re less than the value of the included resources, in case teachers already own some of the resources! The TeachAlong™ also contains TONS of videos that explain exactly how I use the resources and exactly how I would teach in my own classroom, and they are full of tips for your classroom and students.
Q: What about reading/math/other subjects?
A: This TeachAlong™ is very focused on Writer’s Workshop! While you can certainly take the basic framework of Writer’s Workshop and apply it to reading instead, I chose to focus this TeachAlong™ very specifically on using Writer’s Workshop to teach writing in French, since this is such an essential skill for students’ later academic success. (Learn more about my Math Workshop TeachAlong™ HERE.) Throughout this TeachAlong™, we will not be discussing any other subjects.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Due to the digital nature of the course and the materials inside it, I do not grant refunds.
“Les cours de Mme Andrea sont formidables! Tout est super bien organisé. Durant les cours de Mme Andrea, nous recevons tout le matériel nécessaire et même des petits extras! Mme Andrea ainsi que les membres de son équipe et-ou les participant(e)s au cours peuvent facilement partager (questions et commentaires) via un groupe facebook. J’adore les cours de Mme Andrea. Mes élèves aiment beaucoup les activités proposés par Mme Andrea.” – Caro B.
“J’ai adoré travailler avec les documents en salle de classe. La facilité de transférer les documents et de les utiliser, sont fantastiques. J’ai regardé les vidéo et tutoriels pour bien partir l’enseignement.” – Sabrina B.
“J’adore les ‘TeachAlong™‘ avec Mme Andrea. J’apprends tellement dans ses vidéos. Ses ressources sont superbes. ll n’y a pas beaucoup de planifications à faire. Le tout est prêt et très engageant pour les élèves. Mes élèves adorent les diverses activités qu’elle prépare. Elle est toujours disponible à répondre à nos questions rapidement. Je viens de terminer mon 5e ‘TeachAlong™‘ avec elle et je suis convaincue que ce ne sera pas le dernier.” – Kim S.
“I really enjoyed the format of the TeachAlong™. Having the information ‘dropped’ to us in little chunks week by week made it much less overwhelming. I didn’t feel like I had to print and prep a ton of materials all at once. Rather, I always felt very accomplished and ready for the week, because I was able to digest the information, lessons, materials, and videos in smaller parts and then get ‘that’ part ready, not having to worry about ‘all the rest.’ Merci for a great course!” – Joanna A.
“I love the TeachAlong™ format! Only having one week at a time meant I didn’t get overwhelmed or feel like I was behind. The length of the videos were perfect. They gave enough information but were short enough that I could watch them both while having my morning tea. Having the text summaries really helped me organize my teaching plans and allowed me to look back at anytime and from anywhere.” – Julie M.
