Writing Across the Disciplines for Elementary School (Kindergarten – 5th Grade)
This course is now closed for registration.
This 3-session professional development with online components focuses on teaching young children how to write across the disciplines. Participants will learn how to design instruction to teach elementary level students how to write “like” a historian, mathematician, and scientist. Teachers will learn what resources work best for supporting this type of writing, and how to create exemplar pieces for students to analyze. Participants will be encouraged to use what they have learned in-between session meetings, in their own classrooms, and to bring their student examples back to the class for analysis, reflection, and discussion.
This professional development offering is a 3-session mini-course. Participants must register for and attend all 3 sessions in order to receive any credit. This professional development offering is aligned to the CCSS Anchor Standards for Writing and the CPS Framework for Teaching Components 1a., 1b., and 4d.
