Writing Across Curriculum
Join Stuart Goldberg has he presents the importance of writing across curriculum in order to better prepare students to be college and career ready. Throughout this workshop he will review research-based examples and models for you to utilize in your classroom as soon as tomorrow! During the designated workshop time, participants will design writing activities for upcoming units created with guidance from educational research and identified as areas of need for careers in their field of study. The best practices discussed throughout the workshop are a collective of various references and resources provided from research from Writing Across Curriculum and Be a Better Writer: For School, For Fun, For Anyone, by Steven Peha, Mary Ann Rafoth’s Strategies for Learning and Remembering: Study Skills Across the Curriculum, Writing in the Content Areas by Amy Benjamin, and David Booth and Jennifer Rowsell’s The Literacy Principal. Researchers collectively confirm that writing across all curriculum subjects is not only easy for teachers to implement but also far more effective for developing skills students will need in the future than simple assessments.
