Writing Across the Disciplines for Grades PreK-12
This 3-session hybrid (online and face to face), 15 ISBE PDHs, 1 Lane Credit, professional development offering focuses on teaching students how to write in various disciplines. Participants will learn how to incorporate writing into the subjects they teach and make it part of their regular curriculum. Teachers will investigate the writing style specific to their discipline, and create their own exemplar pieces to use as models for student writing assignments. They will use the time in-between session meetings to practice writing lessons with their students, collect written pieces, and bring them back to the class for analysis, reflection, and discussion. Teachers will be required to log-in to the CTUF’s online course interface in order to complete assignments in-between classes. Log-in information and basic technical support for the online component will be provided at the first session.
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.
