Teching Writing Step by Step [Event Flyer]

Presented by: Stefani Relles, Director of Curriculum, SummerTIME, USC.

Have you always wondered how to teach writing? How to engage your students so that they really understand what it means to be a good writer? What it means to work on their writing?
If you want to figure out how students can become better and more self-aware writers, the methods and experiences of USC's SummerTIME program can teach us much, not only, but particularly, for those of us who plan to teach First-Year Seminars.
The workshop will detail the research-based instructional tools and practices USC's SummerTIME program has implemented to yield 91% writing improvement (according to post-secondary institutional norms). Three topics will be covered in detail during the workshop to : page length, revisions, and peer review.

For more on SummerTIME, see HERE, see, in particular, the Syllabi and Assignments tab.
Recent coverage of this program on KPCC can be found HERE.
