The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. In this introductory session, master teachers will discuss principles of writing instruction and give examples of how they instruct students to write both formally and informally. You will see the teachers in their classrooms, where you can observe how they work with their students and how they tie their lessons to local, state, and national standards. By developing a clear understanding of what needs to be accomplished, these teachers are able to anticipate developing needs as well as plan for productive instruction throughout the school year.

ELE14031: Developing Writers: A Shared Path

The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. This course explores the benefits and uses of creating a writing community within the classroom. Many professional writers are members of groups that discuss writing and share their works in progress in order to benefit from peer feedback. Classroom writing communities have similar goals to help students learn how to respond to one another's work and how to benefit from the feedback provided by an expanded audience. Teachers in such classrooms often write when their students do and occasionally share their work and their struggles with their students. 

ELE14032: Developing Writers: Different Audiences

The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. This session suggests ways in which teachers can help students develop an awareness of diverse audiences and appropriate strategies for meeting audience expectations. Writing for personal purposes, whether to record life experiences, explore thoughts and feelings about a subject, or assimilate new information and concepts, comes easily to most students because they do not have to consider the intellectual needs of anyone other than themselves. However, learning to consider the audience or the intended reader of a piece of writing is central to every writer's broader development. Much school-based writing is aimed toward teacher-as-examiner, and students have to meet the various requirements and expectations of a number of different teachers. Beyond school, the range of audiences expands greatly to include family, friends, employers, and perhaps even a general public readership, all of which place different demands on writers. 

ELE14033: Developing Writers: Different Purposes

The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. "Form follows function" is a common adage among writing teachers as they encourage students to consider what they want their writing to accomplish. Students are encouraged to choose a genre and an appropriate level of formality that meets their goals. This session focuses on teaching students useful guidelines to apply when making these choices and it demonstrates that mixing styles or genres can be effective in various circumstances.

ELE14034: Developing Writers: Usage and Mechanics
Subject Area: {"2da9450b4b394a3194749dd568d133cf":{"option":"English Language Arts","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

Credit Hours: 1.5

The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. This workshop answers several important questions about teaching usage and mechanics. What are the most effective ways to teach students the accepted conventions of formal written English? What does research teach us about direct grammar instruction and its transfer to student writing? We have probably all had experiences where a well-crafted argument was rejected because of significant mechanical errors. This session demonstrates methods for helping students produce clear, mechanically sound writing by addressing issues of usage in the context of the students' own writing.

ELE14035: Developing Writers: Providing Feedback on Student Writing

The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. The title of this particular session refers to the peer responses that support student writers in writing classrooms, to the instructional and evaluative feedback students receive from teachers, and to the student self-evaluations that help teachers assess and revise instruction to meet developing student needs. This workshop addresses the topics of peer review, portfolio assessment, rubrics, and methods for managing the paper load of the typical writing classroom. 

ELE14036: Developing Writers: Learning From Professional Writers

The Developing Writers workshops for high school teachers present practical and philosophical advice for teaching writing. In this session, noted authors Amy Tan, Ruthanne Lum McCunn, Maxine Hong Kingston, Rafael Jesus Gonzalez, and Margo Jefferson discuss their craft, answering several important questions about writing. What does it mean to read like a writer? What can the voices and the experiences of published writers teach us as we turn to our own work? All of these questions are discussed. Additionally, this session presents master teachers as they help students approach published writing in a spirit of personal inquiry, eager to discover organizational and stylistic strategies that they might experiment with in their own work.

ELE14037: Developing Writers: Writing in the 21st Century

How we write and how we teach writing has changed radically in the past twenty years. Word processors, email, instant messaging, websites, blogs, and 'zines, as well as digital technologies such as sampling and digital video and photography provide opportunities and challenges as we sort through useful and viable ways to incorporate them into our writing instruction. This session presents ways in which teachers have integrated these types of technologies into their classrooms, along with their successes and difficulties in the process.
