Course Description

According to NAEP results, only 27 percent of students perform at or above proficient levels in writing, and anecdotally, many teachers report that their students are weak in writing. This issue will be explore strategies for effective writing instruction, focusing on the connections between writing, reading, and the most effective ways to motivate reluctant writers and support students who struggle with writing, including English Language Learners and students with disabilities? What are the promises and pitfalls of leveraging technology in the writing process? How can writing in different content areas and across genres enhance students' skills and academic growth? We're also seeking new strategies that help teachers asses student writing.
