As students undertake a writing activity, the teacher leads them through the five steps of the Clear Thinking & Writing process to produce a clearer written product. Each step can be conducted individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction.
Research on writing effectively for clear communication and deeper learning suggests a number of proven strategies that can help students get the most out of any writing experience, especially if the strategies are used to support the goals and the type of writing the writer has chosen.
Following are the items you must submit to earn this micro-credential and the criteria by which they will be evaluated. To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1, 3, and 4 and a “Yes” for Part 2.
