EDUO 9128: Tech & Improved Student Writing

Instructor: Paula Hundley

Course Description:

Instructive research on “90/90/90 schools” – 90% poverty, 90% minority, and 90% proficient – gives insights into strategies that support struggling writers. Two key approaches involve calibrated scoring practices as well as a focus on non-fiction. In this course, we examine research recommendations, apply them to our classrooms, and layer on powerful technology options to make a difference for at risk students.

Note: This course requires several collaborative activities. Therefore, you must register with at least one other person from your district, school, grade level, or subject area. You will work on these activities together at your own pace.


This is a 30-hour, self-paced online course leading to 2 Semester Credits/Units.
