Writing Across the Curriculum #2

Pulling Together Informational Writing in K-8 Classrooms

Why are we embedding writing across the curriculum into our Aguila pedagogy?

  1. Frequent informal writing and sequenced formal writing play a critical role in developing critical thinking skills and learning discipline specific content.
  2. It builds skills important en route to becoming college and career ready (Common Core).
