This lecture and laboratory workshop is designed to train teachers to provide written language intervention in a group setting. Rx for Writing is specifically intended for students in grades 4-12 whose basic written expression skills are below expected standards.
Rx for Writing builds and strengthens grammar and writing mechanics, semantics, syntax, and composition writing skills with an emphasis on the writing process. Language and higher-level thinking skills are developed and supported in this interactive, small-group intervention that covers research-based writing content while mediation, Socratic questioning, and the strengthening of cognitive functions will serve as the core methodology.
This course systematically teaches participants the methodology to develop these components. In this dynamic intervention, students’ written expression skills will be honed while their thinking and language skills will be strengthened, all within an atmosphere where writing skills are explicitly taught so anxiety and reluctance to write are reduced and thinking is maximized.
This workshop has two parts:
Asychronous Learning Activities (approx. 8 hours pre-workshop): includes watching PPT lectures, completing a knowledge assessment, reading research/journal articles and reviewing online resources.
Synchronous Virtual Classroom Instruction (8 hours Zoom online): includes lectures and demonstrations with other participants.
