This course highlights the importance of teachers engaging in the writing process to gain a better understanding of their own writing processes and in turn increase their effectiveness as writing teachers. This course also examines the theoretical, historical, and research-based foundations of writing instruction with particular emphasis on implementing process writing in the classroom. Grounded in current theories about why and how we write as well as best practices for teaching writing, learners will consider how theories and research inform writing pedagogy, professional learning, policy, and future research.
