This course is for ELA teachers who wish to deepen their own understanding of how to help their students become more effective and efficient writers, listeners, speakers and deep thinkers. This course will explore how teachers can help their students excel with the types of writing genres found in typical State ELA Standards.
Teachers will expand their instructional knowledge about writing genres such as narrative, informational, citing textual evidence, argumentative writing and synthesizing research from multiple sources to help students improve their abilities to write effectively to these common types of writing. Teachers will also explore ways to engage their students in productive listening and speaking activities that deepen their understanding and written work.
This interactive course is designed for job-embedded learning and practical classroom application using our virtual lesson study process. This virtual lesson study environment will help facilitate the process for teachers to better incorporate the instructional practices outlined within State Standards, embed writing instruction in ongoing teaching and classroom units and lesson plans.
