Writing in the Content Areas. Research Brief
Walker, Karen
Education Partnerships, Inc.
In an effort for schools to obtain Adequate Yearly Progress, the pressure is on to make certain that students are loaded with as much information as possible in order to score well on the high stakes tests. Writing has continued to move down the list of priorities of what is taught because: it is not being tested or is minimally being assessed. The teaching of writing can be scary and overwhelming to teachers, especially those in fields other than English/Language Arts. Through ongoing training and support, teachers can be made aware of and accept that writing can support their instructional goals. Teachers can: identify their instructional goals, explore strategies to support them, determine ways to meaningfully involve students, ascertain methodologies about how to guide students in their own writing, establish ways to effectively evaluate student writing, and select ways in which to utilize the results of the students' writing.
