Do you want to learn new, fresh, practical strategies for teaching writing? You are invited to spend a week participating in writing activities, exploring your own writing style, and sharing strategies for writing instruction with your peers. In this course, you will experience community building, pre-writing techniques, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing activities which you can take directly into your classroom for your students to experience. You will also work with a response group to polish your writing and to take on the role of student as writer-teacher. Addressing the PA Writing Rubric continues throughout the course as it relates to activities.
“This course was fun as well as very educational. It will help you be a better writing teacher.”
“This is a ‘must take’ course if you need instructional ideas for teaching writing.”
