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.
Collins Education Associates has supported the implementation of writing across curriculum programs for over thirty years. The curriculum is tailor made for specific grade levels and for every curriculum area. Although the framework is beautifully designed to be a learning-to-write initiative, it is equally effective as a writing-to-learn framework. The curriculum will look different depending on the area and the students. All teachers are given the tools to effectively use and assess writing. All students are given a foundation for success. Students who become confident writers become better writers.
This course is applicable to all CTE programs. Lessons and assignments are authentic to each career or technical focus. Students will develop the skills necessary for effective writing in their area. The lessons and assignments will not only encourage literacy, they will demand strong career and technical understanding and application. Teachers are given the tools to instruct, assess and support writing appropriate to their CTE course.
