WRITING IN THE SECONDARY NON-ELA CLASSROOM
September 26 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Literacy is everyone’s responsibility. Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening are skills we want all of our students to master for their futures. We know from statewide OST writing scores that secondary students are not being exposed to the types of writing that exist in the adult world. However, non-ELA teachers feel uncomfortable teaching writing when that hasn’t been part of their teacher preparation program. This session will allay those fears because there are some simple, “do it tomorrow” strategies that can be used in math, science, social studies, art, physical education, and world languages. We will also discuss easy assessment ideas which do not take an English degree to master.
