Krystal aka The renewed teacher breaks down the what, the why and the how of incorporating writing across content areas. 

We talk about:

  1. 1What- Incorporating writing across content areas means creating authentic opportunities to write in each subject.
  2. Why- Studies show that reading and writing proficiency are linked. 
  3. How- You do not need to try and cram writing into every subject everyday.  


 – I saw that our students were struggling with reading and that my coworkers were struggling to fit writing in. I wanted to support them so I figured out how to incorporate writing into the content areas I was teaching. 

-Incorporating writing across content areas means looking at both your content area and language standards to see where the two can connect. 

-Incorporating writing across the content areas means that you have to plan for it, so that you avoid frantically trying to fit it in.
