||The course will continue over the first 12 weeks of the fall semester as an online (Moodle) course. Teachers will receive 3 hours technology credit for the a.m. session and 12 hours of credit when the course is completed. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) document recommends instruction that focuses on three types of writing: argument, informational/explanatory, and narrative. Informational/explanatory writing conveys information accurately. This kind of writing serves one or more closely related purposes: to increase readers’ knowledge of a subject, to help readers better understand a procedure or process, or to provide readers with an enhanced comprehension of a concept.
This module will provide grade-appropriate learning strategies to enable students to name a topic, supply relevant facts, and provide closure. At the completion of this Moodle course, teachers will receive 12 hours of pd credit.
