READ 6603 - Writing to Learn in the Content Areas Grades 6–12


(3 sem. cr.) Writing is a multifaceted process and a powerful tool to support student learning. Through writing, adolescents may demonstrate learning, analyze ideas, or develop arguments based on information from a text. Education professionals in this course explore the importance of writing for college and career readiness and examine the nuances of written communication relative to specific disciplines, including mathematics, physical education, literature, and other disciplines. Through coursework, education professionals have opportunities to engage in discourse modes, including informational, literary, and persuasive writing, and to use short writing (such as journals) and longer composition processes to enhance disciplinary learning. Education professionals consider the types and purposes of writing, explore writing in digital environments, analyze the relationships between reading and writing, and apply instructional practices to support writing to learn in the content areas for all students.
