Let's face it, getting students to write is a chore!
If you are nodding your head or yelling, "YES!", this course is for you!
So how do you increase writing proficiency? By beginning where students are comfortable! Talking!!
Ready to increase the rigor of you “think-pair-share”? How about upping the ante of student collaboration? Would you like to see your students write to describe, explain, and argue? Through this book study we will learn how to increase opportunities for student discourse, how to ensure that discourse is academically focused, and how to transfer the background knowledge gained through that discourse into a variety of genres of writing. We will review research on the needs of ELLs in the domains of speaking and writing, examine the Common Core State Standards for speaking and listening, learn how to integrate language and content standards, and develop lesson plans using a variety of strategies for speaking and writing.
