The Collins Writing Program delivers high-quality, professional development to improve students' written communication skills and build subject area knowledge. Our cross-curricular writing model has been used successfully by thousands of teachers and millions of students in K−12 classrooms for more than 30 years . . . long before state and national standards called for frequent, non-fiction writing in all subject areas.
This course is appropriate for all CTE programs. Assignments will be authentic to each area and students will be instructed in best practices for the writing necessary to their career or technical focus. The lessons and assignments will not only encourage literacy, they will demand strong career and technical understanding. Teachers in these areas will be given the tools to instruct, assess and support writing appropriate to their areas.
