SCAFFOLDING ENGLISH LEARNERS’ WRITING OF EXPOSITORY AND ARGUMENTATIVE TEXTS*

 

This institute focuses on the development of participants’ expertise to engage their students in deep learning of writing expository and argumentative texts. Exploring The Curriculum Cycle and a Functional Model of Language, participants will engage in exemplars that help to build and strengthen a collaborative approach to the writing process. Accordingly, some of the topics you will learn in this institute include:

 

  • How to use the sociocultural theory that underlies QTEL Principles to transform for ELA/Literacy into powerful writing experiences for students in language arts/literary classrooms

  • Why scaffolding the writing process support and challenge students in the attainment of deep academic and conceptual knowledge

  • How to engage students in collaborative writing and reflection

  • Why and how the learning in a language arts/literacy classroom is inherently intertwined with oral and written arguments that respond to ideas, events, facts and arguments presented in texts students read.
