Product Description
As an English teacher who had written a book, I was the go-to person for requests like this: "Hey, the district wants us to emphasize writing across the curriculum! Can you do a workshop where you lecture the science, math, and PE teachers about why they should teach writing while they roll their eyes and secretly note that no one ever asks you to incorporate algebra or chemistry or volleyball into your curriculum? Also... you should be able to train other teachers to teach your subject matter in about an hour, right?"

Perhaps I'm exaggerating. And to be honest, there is some truth to the statement that every teacher IS a writing teacher. But that doesn’t mean every class should become an English class. This handout offers practical tips for non-English-teacher colleagues that can help them do what English teachers *really* want them to do: Reinforce the message that writing is communicating, and students need to communicate clearly.

This handout describes ten skills that every teacher can reinforce during their daily activities. No extra preparation needed.
