CEU Course Description
Part 1: Students who develop strong writing skills at an early age acquire a valuable tool for learning, communication, and self-expression. Teaching Elementary Students to be Effective Writers-2018 update is designed to help educators increase writing achievement for elementary students that will help them succeed in school and society. This course was developed using material from a U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences (IES) publication as a means to formulate specific and coherent evidence-based recommendations for teachers and other school personnel. The course provides practical, clear information on critical topics related to teaching writing and is based on the best available evidence as judged by experts.
Part 2: Literacy and numeracy represent what could be perceived to be a basic set of counting, reading, and writing skills most often obtained in early grades. However, there is a significant imbalance in the communities and populations who achieve mastery of even these basic skills - which ends up contributing in large part to the achievement gap for disadvantaged populations later in life. Systematic early childhood instruction in literacy aims can help reduce these unwanted outcomes. By implementing specific literacy standards and working to understand how children’s brains change when they read, we can learn more about the ways that we can best help struggling students achieve literacy outcomes.
