Hey Friends!! Welcome to Creating a Culture of Writers! I am so excited to share this amazing course with you and support you in your new journey towards accomplished teaching in writing. This specific course is one that I created and have had the opportunity to teach this course with more than a hundred other educators in my district and across my state, Alaska, and I’m excited to bring this course online to reach even more teachers around the globe! Additionally, this course has been offered for 1-3 graduate credits. If you would like to take this course for credit, please contact me.
I designed this online, self-guided course to include a variety of media content delivery and shared resources to support all types of learning styles. Based upon course reviews and testimonials, teachers found this course to be the perfect dose of inspiration they needed to launch or jumpstart their writing program.
Before you begin this course, please order the required textbook, Best Practices: Bringing Standards to Life in America's Classroom, as listed in the resource guide. This text is a great resource, not only for English Language Arts, but ALL subjects in the elementary curriculum. I hope you find this book as valuable for your learning as I have for my own professional growth. It's a keeper!
After you order your book, take a moment to browse each section within the modules before jumping into the content. Remember to work through each module and section chronologically, since the content builds upon prior study and practice.
I look forward to working with you as you launch your writing adventure. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Let's get started!
