In this session, participants continue to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to improve writing instruction for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Phases of genre-specific writing instruction, such as learning about genre, evaluating genre, and writing genre, will be discussed. Because students who are knowledgeable about text structure, recall and write text better than others who aren’t, this session will highlight the importance of making text structure for the genres of narrative, informational/explanatory, and opinion/argumentative writing visually explicit.
