This session highlights research-based strategies for the writing process designed for success with ELs, DLLs and all learners. Using examples and hands-on practice, participants will be introduced to interactive, team-centered strategies to guide ELs/DLLs through the writing process, focusing on content as it relates to the language learner’s need to demonstrate mastery of language and content via writing. Connections will be made between vocabulary, close reading, text-based evidence and discourse, as related to the writing process.
