This course tries to cover a lot of issues concerning the teaching of writing. Your instructor will talk about how students in their class revise, reflect, set goals, peer edit, prewrite, prepare, conference, and maintain writing portfolios. You'll also hear about how your instructor provides written and verbal feedback to students about their writing, and how often they expect students to write. You will get the chance to talk about your approach to teaching writing, and hear from the other teachers in the class. You will be given the time to create or revise a lesson. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion with the equivalent of 7 professional development hours.
