EEDUC 6176 Intentional Teaching in a Writers' Workshop (K-2)

This course focuses on the structure of a writers’ workshop, K-2, and includes assessing and planning for instruction in small group teaching; individual conferring; and whole group minilessons and share for all students, including English language learners. Participants build an understanding of the theory and practice of how young children develop as writers and how children’s writing changes over time using The Continuum of Literacy Learning and other resources. Participants engage in “teachers as writers” to experience the writing process and to develop their knowledge of genre, craft, and conventions. Participants should be teaching in a grade K-2 classroom or have access to students in those grades to successfully complete the requirements of the course.
