Project-based writing

Project-Based Writing

“If it doesn’t exist outside of school, then it isn’t worthy enough to be taught within school.”

Project-Based Writing is an ecourse that focuses on this mantra and the methods that teachers can use to follow through with its promise. Writing is universal, and all subject areas can integrate the different genres in authentic ways to make their content more meaningful.

In this 6-week program, participants will be given examples of project-based writing units across the disciplines, and will be given the opportunity to develop their own unit, receive feedback, and share with others, walking away with multiple units that can be utilized in their classroom both Someday and Monday.
