The Writing Toolkit for Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing: Micro-level Writing

Speaking: Lana Edwards

This webinar continues the examination of writing instruction for students who are deaf or hard of hearing by examining the micro-structures of writing. Components of micro-level writing, including handwriting, spelling, vocabulary, and sentence structure will be discussed with emphasis on instructional strategies for linking micro-level and macro-level structures through the use of “writing warm-ups.” Sentence stems and organizational frames will also be presented as instructional scaffolds to help bridge micro- and macro-level writing.
