Writing is critical to student success in education and it serves as a gateway for employment and promotion in the workplace, and yet a significant number of our nation’s young people struggle with writing to the extent that they are unable to produce texts that meet grade-level expectations. This continuing education course, developed using information from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, provides guidelines for teachers in the development of appropriate content for evidence-based practices (EBPs) for writing instruction. The essential components of evidence-based writing practices are discussed, as well as practical descriptions and suggestions for using them. Research into effective implementation of EBPs is addressed as well as implications for further study.
1. Identify the critical role that writing plays in successful academic pursuits, the workplace, and in society.
2. Discuss factors contributing to the failure of young people to attain writing competency.
3. Outline the ten essential components of Evidence-Based Writing Practices.
4. Evaluate specific practices and suggestions to support each essential writing component.
5. Describe the use of technology, feedback, and assessment to improve writing skills and application.
6. Explore how teachers can incorporate peer collaboration, conferencing, and modeling into the implementation of EBPs.
7. Address current research into effective use of evidence-based writing practices and the need for further study.
