Deepening and Widening the Way we Teach Writing in K-5  (Register HERE)
The Common Core State Standards have led elementary schools to increase the amount of writing students do and provide them with instruction in planning, revising, and editing. This commendable effort, however, is really only a good start. To write well, students must have prior knowledge relevant to what they are writing. The new writing standards have been constructed to increase the mutual benefits of writing and knowledge. This webinar will focus on deepening how we teach writing to help students overcome the prior-knowledge problem and widening how we teach writing to increase student content knowledge.
In this webinar, our guests will:
• Show how the writing standards are based on research about the relationship between knowledge and writing,
• Present practical lesson frameworks that help students overcome a lack of prior knowledge, and
• Show how to use topical writing and writing across the curriculum to build content knowledge and teach how to write better.
