Content Instruction and Authentic Writing in Science: The Bridge to Writing Growth for English Learners - 006237
Writing can be difficult for students, and many teachers question how to support English learners in increasing their writing proficiency. In this two-part series, teachers discover how to use a science-content lens to implement effective, consistent, and - most importantly - authentic writing opportunities for students. Teachers will engage in effective planning practices and bring student writing samples to evaluate for increasing complex sentence structures, which reflect student growth. By participating in this hands-on training, teachers will make the connection between content-area expectations and writing instruction! The afternoon of both days will devote time to planning and development of scaffolds needed to support students with authentic writing connected to an upcoming science concept. Teachers should bring a device and materials to use during the afternoon work time.
