This online course overviews the evidence-based writing model: Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) developed by Dr. Karen R. Harris at Arizona State University. Learn to use methods that have been extensively validated as effective in teaching struggling writers, such as formative assessment, rubrics, modeling, goal setting and graphic organizers. You will also learn to cultivate the necessary self-regulation in students that expert writers possess, and gradual release methods to empower students to own their writing. The methods learned in this course will strengthen your existing writing instruction.
