Webinar will be presented on Tuesday, August 4, 8:00 PM
Ohio’s Learning Standards stress the critical role that reading and writing play in the learning process regardless of the content area. This session will focus on using writing as a strategy to learn content across disciplines. Argument and explanatory writing require evidence gleaned from research. Library staff have a role to support this approach which not only increases literacy capabilities but also increases knowledge-building.
