Strategies for Writing in the Content Area

Debbie Schraeder & Sheree Person-Pandil, Presenters (Niobrara Room)

Students need daily practice in writing; content area writing is an effective way to improve learning and deepen understanding in all content areas. Teaching students HOW to write and react to content taught/learned should be a part of teaching any subject. Content writing and sharing the writing with others will reinforce learning for ALL. The session will also include “how to” steps for writing a technical response—i.e., explaining how a problem was solved, or writing a science lab report. To tap this natural expression of learning- strategies will be shared, modeled, and practiced during this session.
