This course promotes the thoughtful examination of writing instruction at the middle level.

Using a process approach, students learn how to communicate ideas effectively in a variety of genres and for a multitude of purposes. Based on the most current understandings in the field, this course explores such topics as writer's workshop, conferencing, struggling writers, assessment, reading/writing connections, writing in the disciplines, revision and editing, the use of digital media to support writers, and the management of writing instruction. This course is in conjunction with an eight-week field experience.
