We know that writing builds communicative skills as it develops critical and analytical thinking. Why then, do we avoid assigning that writing task? Do we fear a student rebellion? Dread the mountain of resulting papers to grade? Honestly, have we been taught to effectively teach, or assess, writing?  Probably not. 

Join UT clinical professor Julia Haug and master Foreign Language teacher Rose Potter for this one day workshop. Learn to integrate ELA planning and assessment strategies into a cross-curricular unit of study that will help cultivate your students' communication skills in all three modes. This approach will build your students' creativity, problem solving and entrepreneurship skills.

Leave this interactive workshop with the outline for a writing unit, your own writing sample, and samples of work shared by your colleagues.
