This session concludes the training on effective writing practices for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Content emphasizes how to make the writing process work by selecting and explicitly teaching novice writers strategies used by expert writers through self-regulated strategy development.
Self-regulated strategy development stages of instruction will be presented, and examples of specific writing strategies and mnemonic prompts will be discussed.
Overall, the use of writing strategies pulls content presented in the webinar series together because the purpose of strategic writing is to help students develop self-efficacy, ownership of the writing process, and independent use of writing strategies.
