How can we incorporate writing instruction and opportunities throughout our curriculum in order to challenge our students to view writing as a real world skill with authentic applications?  Writing is not just a practice reserved for English classes; it’s one of the most important skills for being successful in the world beyond the classroom. What we suggest is not the demand for more writing classes but the need to embed the skill in all academic practices, much like we now do with computing. Learn how The Oakridge School has made use of both traditional and technological resources to expand its promotion of student writing across the disciplines. This session will provide practical ideas for reinforcing key writing concepts using discipline specific writing assignments and strategies that encourage critical thinking.
