Students need to write frequently in a variety of forms, for a variety of purposes and audiences, and for each subject in school. They write to communicate with others, to focus thoughts and to develop ideas, to make an argument, to share experiences, and to demonstrate learning. In order for students to find success in writing, they must be taught strategies for each step of the writing process from brainstorming to publishing. In this workshop middle school teachers across the content areas will learn effective ways to engage students in the writing process using Web 2.0 tools. Throughout this course, participants will be introduced to Web 2.0 tools, such as weblogs, podcasts, and online word processing tools that can strengthen the writing process. Participants will also learn how each tool can be used for multiple phases of the writing process and to differentiate instruction for a variety of student populations. By the end of the workshop, participants will have developed a lesson plan focusing on using technology to support the writing process that incorporates at least one Web 2.0 tool.
