Writing As a Measure and Model of Thinking

About This Course

As schools face increasing accountability and public demand for improved student performance, the need for high-yield, research-based strategies to increase student academic achievement grows.

One of the most influential and productive strategies employed by schools is the systemic use of writing as the assessment of curriculum standards.

Writing with a focus on modeling and measuring thinking skills produces much more than traditional “writing across the curriculum” methods.

In this session, strategies to build writing as a reflection of thinking are discussed. Participants practice “Quick Writes” based on Dr. Robert Marzano’s metacognition power strategies, and plan for thinking/writing targets for all students.
