EDU 341 - Teaching Writing in Grades K-8: Process to Product

3 CR

This course is designed to introduce pre-service teachers and in-service teachers, from all disciplines, to the development of writing, teaching writing, and assessing writing in all content areas. A thorough study of current research and theory relating to the writing process leads to the development of instructional programs that will foster students’ growth as writers. Strategies are modeled to meet the needs of diverse learners and an exploration of technology and standards is included. Students gain experience with the writing process through the development of a community of writers in an ongoing, online writing workshop. Attention will be paid to how teachers assess student writing. This course is taught fully online via Blackboard’s online instruction.

Prerequisite(s): Admission to teacher candidacy or instructor permission.
