To become effective writers, students should see the writing process as strategic and as useful in their lives as writers, not as a series of products English teachers require in addition to the “final” product. A shift to teaching from a strategic perspective doesn’t mean changing everything we do, but simply changing a few ways we go about doing what we already do. In this workshop, learn how to make your writing instruction more effective by taking a strategic approach.  After an overview of the principles involved, practice turning an existing assignment into a strategy practice that will benefit your student writers. 

In this interactive session, teacher and author Debbie Dean will help participants enhance their writing instruction by considering process as a strategy and genre as an approach to teaching writing. In this hour, you'll learn

  • What is meant by a strategic approach to process;
  • What ideas can be used for teaching strategies;
  • How to turn a writing assignment into strategic instruction;
  • What a genre approach means;
  • How to develop strategies for genres;
  • How to encourage transfer of strategies.
Note: Due to the online nature of this product, purchases are nonrefundable.
