Course Description

Teach the Writing Process – Equip Students to Write Effectively with Confidence, Purpose and Enjoyment

Common Core offers an unprecedented broad vision for the role of writing in literacy, particularly in supporting reading comprehension and critical thinking. Prepare your students to write to express who they are, write to sources, write to learn in all content areas, and to write to change themselves and the world. Over 100 empirical studies show the effectiveness of the strategies featured in this course (Self-regulated Strategy Development). Every district using these make significant gains on MCAS/PARCC. These strategies include: genre vocabulary instruction, formative assessment, graphic organizers, analyzing models, think alouds, collaborative writing, mnemonics, goal setting, and self-talk while writing. Overall, enable students to cultivate the self-regulation capabilities expert writers use. Weave these into any literacy framework from balanced literacy workshop to core programs. Gain a deep understanding of how to meet CCSS and PARCC/SBAC’s writing requirements. Grades 2-5. 1 cr via Endicott College for additional $90/course work.
