Enhancing Middle School and High School Partnerships: Evidence-based Writing Instruction
Wednesday November 04, 2020 1:00 PM - 4:15 PM - Webinar
This event is by invitation only. You must have a registration key in order to register.
In this training participants will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to improve writing instruction for students in grades 4-12. Topics include how to schedule time for writing instruction, optimize the relationship between language and the discourse knowledge required for the writing process, explicitly teach students how to respond to text by writing (e.g., note taking, summarizing, question answering), and apply the writing process to discipline-specific writing projects (e.g., narrative, informational, and option/argumentative writing). Developing dynamic writing instruction and student engagement will also be discussed with a focus on the use of inquiry-based activities, collaborative writing opportunities, use of project goal setting, and on-going feedback. As part of this workshop, participants will develop a comprehensive action plan to guide implementation of effective, evidence-based writing instruction.
Participants will be able to:
- Explicitly teach students how to respond to text by writing (e.g., note taking, summarizing, question answering)
- Identify the components of the writing process
- Use explicit instruction to teach all components of the writing process within discipline-specific writing (e.g., narrative writing, informational writing, opinion/argumentative writing)
- Incorporate strategies for motivating and engaging students in the writing process during classroom instruction
