Continuing Education Introduces New Online Course - Teaching Writing: Grades K-3

January 16, 2013

Mississippi College has a program that makes it easy to take high-quality, noncredit online courses. The Office of Continuing Education offers hundreds of online, instructor-led courses and is pleased to announce the launch of "Teaching Writing: Grades K-3."

Participants in this course will learn how to nurture student writers in the early elementary classroom. They'll gain knowledge about the developmental stages of writing from scribbling to paragraph writing, and learn to implement tools like the writer's workshop, the six traits of writing, and genre study.

New sessions of each course run every month. They last six weeks, with two new lessons being released weekly (for a total of 12). The courses are entirely Web-based with comprehensive lessons, quizzes, and assignments. A dedicated professional instructor facilitates every course; pacing learners, answering questions, giving feedback, and facilitating discussions. The completed course is eligible for 2.4 CEUs.
