We'll discuss each step of teaching writing and the strategies you can use with your students. You'll also work on strengthening your students' writing using technology. Along the way, you'll develop engaging lessons for literary response, narrative writing, expository writing, and persuasive writing. We'll look at the characteristics of each type of writing, and you'll get practical suggestions for teaching them to your class.
Two writing approaches we'll cover, 6+1 Trait Writing and Writer's Workshop, will enable you to put everything you learn in this course into a workable format. You'll also discover the secrets of effective writing assessment as you learn about evaluation tools like portfolios and rubrics.
