Cultivating Writing Schoolwide – Secondary is designed to empower secondary and postsecondary educators with knowledge and strategies to increase their skills and confidence in using writing as a powerful tool in a 21st century learning environment. Educators across all discipline areas will gain strategies for teaching the writing process and build an understanding of the four common academic modes of writing (argumentative, expository, narrative, and descriptive) as well as writing for a range of academic purposes. Participants will explore the power of metacognitive writing to cultivate literacy and student agency. This collaborative experience will allow educators, regardless of familiarity with the pedagogy of writing instruction, to explore strategies to help students access rigorous content and write like content experts. Participants will engage in both synchronous and semi-synchronous learning. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
