Writing an evidence-based piece is the most complicated of all types of writing to teach.  However, this type of writing is the most commonly used form of writing in high school, college and work.  This course will provide useful tools and practical writing strategies for teachers to help students develop this important skill in constructed response questions in reading, math and science and in argumentative essays.  Participants will walk away with a wide array of easy-to-use activities and strategies to effectively teach the process of evidence-based writing and help students master the process of writing claims, evidence, analysis and counter-argument.  This standards-aligned course is suitable for 4th through 12th grade teachers across all disciplines. This offering is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for ELA and the ACT College and Career-Ready Standards and the CPS Framework for Teaching Components:  1c, 1d and 2b.

Several days prior to the start of the course, participants receive an email with instructions for accessing the course. A week’s material is posted at the start of each week.  Participants are expected to read content and review various resources, write replies/answer questions, share experiences, and engage in discussions with the course facilitator and other participants.  None of the assignments are completed in "real-time;" you can work at the times that best suit your own schedule.
