BWPEDU 510 Writing in the Content Areas (Middle & High School)

This course is designed to address teachers’ growing need to teach writing in specific disciplines. Participants will examine developmental learning theory connecting writing and learning, improve their own writing skills, and learn effective practices for teaching writing. Through journals, writing prompts, and reader response methods, participants will integrate theories with practice. They will examine assessment and evaluation methods for measuring students’ progress. Applying their knowledge of the Massachusetts Curriculum frameworks, they will work on interdisciplinary teams to design units of study that reflect the needs of their school contexts and state standards.
