EDUC 7473 Teaching Writing (Summer: 3 )
In this course, developing and sustaining a writing curriculum for teachers in K-12 will be practiced and discussed, including a variety of pedagogical approaches to developing a sustained and enjoyable classroom writing culture. The primary emphasis will be on learning through doing--students will write in a variety of genres themselves (poetry, short fiction, memoir, reader response essay) with group discussion on process and implementation in their individual classrooms and based on their own students' needs. Grade is based on a portfolio of finished writing and a strategic plan for implementing writing protocols and ideas in the classroom.
