range and content of student writing
Range and Content of Student Writing

“To build a foundation for college and career readiness, students need to learn to use writing as a way of offering and supporting opinions, demonstrating understanding of the subjects they are studying, and conveying real and imagined experiences and events.

They learn to appreciate that a key purpose of writing is to communicate clearly to an external, sometimes unfamiliar audience, and they begin to adapt the form and content of their writing to accomplish a particular task and purpose.

They develop the capacity to build knowledge on a subject through research projects and to respond analytically to literary and informational sources.

To meet these goals, students must devote significant time and effort to writing, producing numerous pieces over short and extended time frames throughout the year."

As the advent of new technologies has expanded forms of written communication beyond the printed linear written text, expectations for students to be able to function in the 21st Century, demanding wider abilities to write, read, and think in nonlinear systems have increased. Explore the nonlinear world through these various writing assignments.

A nonlinear writing assignment:

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Open Course Ware (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity.

The following link includes activities and assignments from the course: Interactive and Non-Linear Narrative: Theory and Practice.

Additional teaching resources on visual literacy and nonlinear writing can be found, on the International Visual Literacy Association Web site, which is dedicated to research, study, and publication of visual literacy.

different types and purposes of writing the challenges in writing the music paper
Different Types and Purposes of Writing: The Challenges in Writing the Music Paper

“In particular, note the difference between a Science paper and a Humanities paper: in the Science paper you will try to derive meaning, or prove a phenomenon, by using "hard" evidence; in the Humanities paper, you will derive meaning, or create an interpretation, from examining texts ---- in this case, music.

You are not going to take a piece of music into a laboratory, heat it up or pull it apart, and see what musical truths you can prove. But you will be taking the music or musical text “apart” as you examine its elements, and use those elements to support your interpretation.“

purpose of informational and explanatory writing in the technical subjects
Purpose of Informational and Explanatory Writing in the Technical Subjects

Informational/explanatory writing conveys information accurately. This kind of writing serves one or more closely related purposes: to increase readers’ knowledge of a subject, to help readers better understand a procedure or process, or to provide readers with an enhanced comprehension of a concept.

Informational/explanatory writing addresses matters such as types (What are the different types of poetry?) and components (What are the parts of a motor?); size, function, or behavior (How big is the United States? What is an X-ray used for? How do penguins find food?); how things work (How does the legislative branch of government function?); and why things happen (Why do some authors blend genres?).

To produce this kind of writing, students draw from what they already know and from primary and secondary sources.

In small groups discuss
  • In your discipline (content areas), what are some real life applications of informative and explanatory writing?
  • What types or forms does this writing take?
  • What are the “technical language” symbols, terms, and/or structures that are expected in college and career writing in you discipline?

review your action plans
Review Your Action Plans

Is there a range of writing opportunities for your students?

Is there a range of discipline-specific tasks? Purposes? Audiences?

Are the tasks reflective of what would be found in the real world?

Have you provided time for the students to look back on their writing and make improvements or revise their work?

Think of current and potential technologies you have to support or expand the writing production and distribution, as well as untapped audiences for the student writing. Identify a few different new ways writing could be incorporated into your classroom structure by flipping or blending your instruction.

unit summary
Unit Summary

Writing in the technical subjects is linked to the real world learning through “doing” in the technical subjects and is critical to developing student literacies.

Writing in the technical subjects includes being able to write using the discipline-specific technical language, notation or symbol systems, as well as conforming to technical standards, formats and applications. 

Writing in the technical subjects takes many formats and is both produced and distributed in multiple platforms reflective of the technical subject’s domain. 

Writing within the technical subject classroom provides the students with opportunities to engage in real world projects.
