Room 108, Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus
This workshop will demonstrate how Oregon Writing Project strategies can be used to help students write science lab reports. While this writing style is challenging for many students, effective and engaging differentiation strategies will be demonstrated.
The use of criteria sheets, model papers, pre-writing, highlighting for criteria, and revision will be included. Participants will conduct a small experiment, practice these writing strategies, and will receive sample instructional materials.
Credit Option: This workshop is part of the “Oregon Writing Project Series”. Each workshop in the Oregon Writing Project Series can be taken individually or in sequence, with the option to purchase 1 semester hour of continuing education credit after completing all 5 in the series. Registration for credit will occur at the last workshop in this series.
