Location: SKPD

Course Description:

From the time that a young child picks up a crayon and makes marks on a paper to when an older child puts the finishing sentence on an autobiography or a poem, a young author is developing the skills that will be used for a lifetime. In this course, you’ll examine the developmental stage of writing, from scribbling to the standard spelling stage, so that you can foster your students’ skills and gently nudge them to grow as authors.

You’ll look at tools such as the writer’s workshop, the six traits of writing, and genre studies for way to teach students about writing. You’ll see how each of these tools can be used by teachers to encourage early elementary writers. As your students become better writers, they will become better readers, and you’ll see how well reading and writing instruction work together to support each other.
