Linking Culturally Related Teaching to Written Expression
How do educators provide effective writing instruction to culturally diverse students, as well as those with learning and/or language impairments? We all know that this can be a challenging undertaking to accommodate the cognitive, linguistic, cultural, and the motivational diversity of these different population of learners, as well as being able to plan and implement instruction to successfully address their various needs.
This webinar will examine the nature of this population of students’ writing difficulties and propose practical suggestions based upon evidence-based practices for building skills of the written word, sentence and text levels. Discussion will include strategies to support the writing process, motivation and self-regulation for these diverse learners.
