[3]
An introduction to theories and techniques of writing instruction. Current theory and research will be applied in developing a repertoire of approaches to writing instruction and curriculum development. Students will examine research that analyzes writing from linguistic, psychological and developmental perspectives. Direct experience in personal writing will reinforce theoretical study of the processes of composition and enable prospective teachers to improve their own writing skills. Each student will design a model writing program or course, including rationale for choices made, and he or she will demonstrate how specific features of the course or program will be taught.
Prerequisite: Prerequisite: A course in literature or education and consent of department.
