Help! I want to improve how I teach writing – where do I start?
Improving student writing starts with this: understanding the difference between what students do, which is writing and what teachers do, which is teach writing.
This one-hour course features two activities which force you to rethink your approach to teaching writing. You will learn about how the act of writing will give you more insight into the motivations and thinking of your students to make you a better teacher of writing.
