This course is for all K-12 teachers in all subjects looking to add effective speaking and listening lessons to their repertoire. Why? Because employers list effective verbal communication as one of the top skills desired in employees, yet almost no teacher preparation programs train educators in how to teach, assess, and provide feedback on speaking and listening skills; and few schools or districts ever offer workshops on the topics.

Under Common Core, all teachers need to be writing teachers. Unfortunately many History/Social Studies teachers have not had significant instruction and/or practice in historical writing. Worse, very few teacher professional development seminars focus on this topic. This course will help social studies teachers: (1) identify the characteristics of high quality writing, (2) improve argumentative writing, (3) improve informative or explanatory writing, (4) improve narrative writing, (5) conduct rubric validation, and (6) incorporate peer review and revision memos.
