First Session description:

The first session of this series “Online Reading and Research” begins with an interest of your own, we will guide you through a process that you can do with your students the next day.

We begin by making comments to young writers on Youth Voices from around the country who share our areas of inquiry. Then we use our own questions to find relevant and useful information, annotate texts online, and include quotes from these sources in our first blog posts on Youth Voices.

At the end of the first 90 minutes you will have a brainstormed list of questions in Google Docs, and on Youth Voices you will have a comment that follows a guide we’ll provide and your own post that includes a quote or two from an online article. You will submit this work to earn your first open, digital badge. Your blended learning experience will take you from writing questions to portfolio assessment in 90 minutes.

Next, we’ll unpack this experience through a careful discussion of how you might include this online writing process in your classroom.   And finally, we will read, annotate, and discuss documents that describe Connected Learning, the theory and the research behind the Youth Voices platform and the online curriculum that we have been designing and nurturing at the New York City Writing Project for the past 15 years.
