The Common Core State Standards suggest that writing must live across all disciplines. This course is an exploration of what that might look like. Through conversation, reading, and writing together, participants in this course, developed in partnership with the National Writing Project, will explore what it means to write deeply across the disciplines as a way of learning, as well as what it might mean to ask students to write for a discipline.
Welcome back for Week 2. This week, we’ll take a look at some writing habits, tools, and toys, spend time writing together, and thinking about and discussing how others develop writing habits in their classrooms. Our focus, this week and next, is on writing across the curriculum - stuff we can do to promote writing in our classrooms whatever our content area.
