Constructed Responses, Argumentative Essays, and Other Forms of Writing

About This Course

During this course, participants will take an in-depth look at the production and distribution of writing. This course also covers tips to help students respond—in writing—to constructed response questions that are open in nature and might involve the use of contextual information or the use of graphs, charts, and other graphics.

Key takeaways include the ability to guide students to compose content-based argumentative essays. This skill will help students gain a better understanding of the differences between persuasive and argumentative pieces. This course will help participants clarify appropriate approaches to teaching each form of writing. The use of graphic organizers and a wide array of resource materials are also investigated.
