Teaching Students to Write Well (4-12) Virtual | January 9, 2024 - February 27, 2024 | 3:30 PM - 6:30 PM CT
Teaching students to write well can be a challenge. This online professional development course is designed to help educators in grades 4 - 12 teach writing skills. Based on research at the University of Kansas and others, young students can master the skill of writing. Explore the KU Sentence and Paragraph Writing strategies as well as instructional methods from other writing research. Discover strategies for assisting students to consistently write complete sentences, complicated sentences, well-organized paragraphs and different types of paragraphs.
The materials for this series, KU Fundamentals and Proficiency of Sentence Writing and the new Fundamentals of Paragraph Writing, are included in the cost of this series. Participants will be asked to submit some basic data about students’ progress in paragraph writing and feedback about the new strategy for younger students.
Participation is required at all three sessions:
Session 1: Tuesday, January 9, 2024
Session 2: Tuesday, February 6, 2024
Session 3: Tuesday, February 27, 2024
