Engaging Reluctant Writers

Many students lack confidence when it comes to writing. Whether it’s due to a lack of past success or low motivation, it can be hard to get students excited about their own potential. In this course, veteran teacher Tom Puterbaugh shares his experiences teaching nearly every writing-based high school course over decades in the classroom. From mixing modes and genres to incorporating relevant voices and audiences, any secondary educator who’s concerned about literacy will learn plenty of strategies they can implement with their own students immediately.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion reflecting a total course time of 55 minutes (.90 hours) and course completion on a provided transcript.
