Professional Development for Instructors of Integrated Reading and Writing
MyProfessionalDevelopment for Teaching Reading, Writing, Integrated Reading and Writing (IRW) is a three-lesson interactive online course intended to help prepare developmental reading and writing instructors who are being assigned to teach new integrated reading and writing courses.
The reading lesson focuses on how to teach students the pre-, during, and post-reading strategies they need to succeed and covers previewing, activating background knowledge, highlighting and annotating, vocabulary decoding, outlining, paraphrasing and summarizing. The lesson dedicated to the teaching of writing begins with how to teach the fundamentals of sentence and paragraph construction and then addresses how to use a recursive writing process to shape and refine raw material into a finished product, covering thesis development, paragraph and essay construction, and revision, editing, and proofreading strategies. It also provides information on grammar instruction and how to use rubrics to assess student writing.
Teaching both reading and writing in an integrated course requires considerable expertise and planning. The Integrated Reading and Writing lesson is designed to help instructors who are more familiar with either teaching reading or writing be more aware of the theory and best practices for succeeding in teaching an integrated model. It explains the integrated approach, summarizes research findings, explains how to develop and structure a course and select materials, describes strategies for teaching concurrent reading and writing skills in all assignments, discusses how to reach students metacognition, and explains how to help students form communities of learners. All of the lessons provide practical classroom materials and activities based in a solid pedagogical framework of best practices in the teaching of developmental reading, writing, and Integrated Reading and Writing courses.
