This 28-hour workshop series is intended for English language arts teachers as an introduction to the CSU Expository Reading and Writing Course (ERWC) for grade twelve and the ERWC curriculum modules for grades nine through eleven. The workshops are generally three and one-half days scheduled over several months, although the schedule may vary by region. Aligned with the California Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy, 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. Approved as a “b” course satisfying the English subject requirement for UC and CSU admission, the ERWC may be adopted as a senior English course. The modules for grades nine through eleven may be integrated within existing English courses at those grades.
Teachers attending this workshop will receive:
Course materials and other professional books
Curriculum for preparing students to meet the demands of college-level classes
Strategies for helping students read and write rhetorically
An opportunity to calibrate school-level expectations with college-level expectations
Certification to teach the ERWC as a senior year course
