EDM 312 - Writing for Middle School Teachers

[3 credit(s)]
Students will work in small groups and individually to develop appropriate expository writing skills for educators. Students will use strategies and techniques to improve their own writing that can also be applied in middle grades classrooms to a diverse group of learners including those of varying abilities. Pre-assessment of writing skills will identify individual strengths and weaknesses . On assignments that apply the kinds of writing most commonly required of classroom teachers, administrators, and education scholars, students will demonstrate mastery of standard grammar, spelling, punctuation, usage, syntax, word choice, coherence and transitions, flow, sequencing, and elegance in writing. Current academic content standards for middle and secondary grades will be incorporated and students will demonstrate higher order thinking, analysis and synthesis in their writing. While this course is required of Middle Childhood licensure students in English Language Arts, it may also be taken by other pre-service teachers in middle and secondary education.
