Integrating Writing into the Content Areas


This class examines strategies for integrating reading and writing across the content areas. We will explore how to help grade 6-12 students develop their identities as writers and readers as they learn how to negotiate texts, expand their vocabulary, and use writing as a tool for understanding and expressing who they are. Together, we will learn a variety of approaches for supporting diverse learners and helping each student in our classroom develop a rich literacy life.

Goals & Learning Outcomes:

  • Explore and develop our own writing identity.
  • Read like writers.
  • Use writing as a tool for understanding and sharing new knowledge.
  • Create a Writing Workshop.
  • Create diverse genres to invite deep learning, creativity, and choice.
  • Assess and e-VALUE-ate, or find value, in our writing and the writing of others.
  • Apply these skills to teaching students how to write to learn

Non-Credit classes start at $99, and are typically available online. In addition to gaining professional skills, this is a perfect opportunity to acquire recertification points, professional development credits, or continuing education units (CEU’s).
