Teaching Writing Specialization

Teaching Writing Reading Learning Leader. Examine and apply theories and best practices to improve the teaching of writing to students of all grade levels and disciplines, in and out of a formal school environment.
This specialization will provide learners with proven methods to improve the writing of students of all ages, in all situations, including K through University classrooms as well as homeschooling, tutoring, in business and the private sector. In four courses and a final project, you’ll learn effective theories and practices to teach writing that you can adapt to your own teaching situation and needs. You’ll learn how to teach writing as process, how to reach even the most reluctant writers, how to help students construct specific texts and make the reading/writing connection, and how to respond to and assess student writing in ways that are meaningful to both teacher and student. If you use writing in your teaching, or want to, this specialization will provide you with tools and practices you can use with your students right away.

Applied Learning Project

Learners will examine and adapt best practices
in the teaching of writing to meet their own students’ needs and situations,
regardless of grade level, discipline or skill level. They will create
activities and lesson plans designed to help their students improve their
writing skills, and will reflect on the theories and values that guide their
teaching.
