7. CCTC-The Writing Revolution Book Study

Program: Cortland County Teacher Center

Audience: K-12 Teachers

Dates: 11/2/2023 to 5/9/2024

Have you ever wished for a practical guide to teach writing? What if that guide took the mystery out of learning to write well? Authors Judith C.Hochman and Natalie Wexler write, "The Writing Revolution (TWR) is as much a method of teaching content as it is a method of teaching writing. There's no separate writing block and no separate writing curriculum. Instead, teachers of all subjects adapt TWR's strategies and activities to their preexisting curriculum and weave them into their content instruction." Build your writing toolbox as The Writing Revolution identifies six different principles that take the reader from sentence writing, to grammar, and finally to writing process, planning, and revising. The book is helpful for teachers of all grades and content areas. The self-paced online course will offer 10 CTLE hours upon completion. There are 5 one-hour instructor led online sessions. Up to 5 additional CTLE hours will be offered for participation in the online sessions.

Her hope is that the digital materials she creates become a resource for teachers and students to become global citizens, break down barriers, abolish stereotypes, and become more open-minded and inclusive to all people, both far and near.
