SEEC - NDSoR: Accelerating Skilled Disciplinary Writers (2023-2024) [Multi-Day Series]

Wednesday, September 27, 2023 (3:30 PM - 4:30 PM) (CDT)

Description

DESCRIPTION:

This course will provide participants with a framework for writing instruction that can be used in all grade levels and content areas—including elementary, and middle school/high school content area educators. Because the approach taught in this course relies on mentor texts and explicit instruction, this will contrast with a writer’s workshop and process model.  This course will combine online, synchronous meetings, face-to-face experiences, and asynchronous practice submissions. Prior to each session, there will be required reading from the provided text.

Overarching Objective:

Educators will be able to identify the types of writing they expect from their learners and the characteristics of that writing, and well as how to explicitly teach the characteristics they expect. 

NOTE: In-between each face-to-face day, participants will have independent practice time to apply and reflect on their learning from the previous session.
