Teaching Writing: Grades 4-6

Teaching Writing: Grades 4-6

$119.00 (USD)

Offered in partnership with Massachusetts Bay Community College


In this teacher-training course, you'll learn from an experienced educator how to motivate and assist developing writers. We'll begin with an overview of the writing basics, focusing on the importance of the task, audience, and purpose. Then we'll delve into how to organize your materials to create an inviting writing environment.

We'll discuss each step of teaching writing and the strategies you can use with your students. You'll also work on strengthening your students' writing using technology. Along the way, you'll develop engaging lessons for literary response, narrative writing, expository writing, and persuasive writing. We'll look at the characteristics of each type of writing, and you'll get practical suggestions for teaching them to your class.

Two writing approaches we'll cover, 6+1 Trait Writing and Writer's Workshop, will enable you to put everything you learn in this course into a workable format. You'll also discover the secrets of effective writing assessment as you learn about evaluation tools like portfolios and rubrics.

Note: To receive 25 hours of instruction in the State of Oregon, please ensure your school is eligible to issue professional development units, and that the course is approved by your professional learning coordinator.
