“Writing in the Middle School Content Area Classroom” Program Coming to NCCAT

Participants will have the opportunity to practice writing and give constructive feedback during this NCCAT program.

CULLOWHEE—Math, science and social studies teachers will have chance to see that writing offers a tool for both instruction and assessment during “Writing in the Middle School Content Area Classroom” at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, a recognized national leader in professional development programming for teachers.

The program, which is number 14613, takes place April 16–19 in Cullowhee. Participants will have the opportunity to practice writing and give constructive feedback.

Once the purview solely of the English teacher, reading and writing instruction has moved into every classroom. Changes in the standard course of study require that students read greater amounts of non-fiction and construct viable written arguments using reasons and evidence.

Teaching writing is a challenge even to those who were trained to do it; it can be downright terrifying to everyone else. This program offers help and tips to make that happen in the classroom.
