Explicit Writing Instruction with the Science of Reading in Mind
Course #
Graduate Credits
Grade Level

Just as the Science of Reading describes the many complex components working together to result in skilled reading, the Science of Writing details the essential elements of a comprehensive writing curriculum. Teachers of all subject areas, in elementary or secondary classrooms, can support writing instruction through evidence-based, practical strategies. You’ll explore everything from using phonics and orthography to inform spelling, to explicit routines to build sentence and paragraph composition, as well as the study of literary devices, writer’s craft, and text structure. Learn to weave writing into the content areas like science, history/social studies and even math, with strategies to teach note-taking, summarizing, and writing about reading. Full of downloadable and ready-to-use resources, this course will help you build and broaden your writing instruction skills. 

This course format builds from module to module in a way that allows you to work through each of the essential ideas in smaller, more focused segments. You’ll find the same great resources and applicable assignments, distributed over 10 modules.


This course is part of a Literacy Intermediate (3-8) Learning Pathway/Certificate bundle in partnership with American College of Education and Augustana University. Visit our Certificate page to learn more.
