Description:

This workshop is intended for English teachers as an introduction to the materials contained in the CSU 12th Grade Expository Reading and Writing Course. In most areas, the first and second days of the workshop will be conducted in the summer or early fall; the third and fourth days will be conducted in the fall and spring. Workshop locations may be CSU campuses and/or county office of education. Aligned with the English-Language Arts Content Standards, the course emphasizes the in-depth study of expository, analytical, and argumentative reading and writing. These rich, adaptable resources, developed by a collaborative group of CSU and high school faculty and specialists, are designed to help students develop the academic literacy skills necessary for success in college and the world of work. Schools may adopt the course as a senior English course or integrate course modules within existing English courses at the 11th and 12th grades.

Teachers attending this workshop will receive:

  • Course materials and other professional books
  • Lessons for preparing students to meet college-level classes
  • Strategies for helping students read and write rhetorically
  • An opportunity to calibrate school-level expectations with college-level expectations
