GREATER KANSAS CITY

Teaching Argument Writing, Secondary Grades

Facilitators: Katie Kline


This course uses the National Writing Project's College, Career and Community Writing Program to improve students' argument writing skills. 

This course is designed for educators to develop the dual roles of writer and writing teacher. The primary objective of the course is for participants to submit for publication writing that grows out of their own teacher inquiry projects. Participants must identify their area of inquiry prior to being admitted to the course. Class time will be spent writing, revising, receiving and offering feedback to other participants. Guest presenters will include other published educators. Contact the GKCWP for more information on our courses.
