The ability to write effectively is rarely learned without explicit instruction. This lecture will present a rationale for using consistent principles to teach writing across the curriculum and through the grades. Evidence-based strategies should be taught to all students in order to teach them how to express themselves with coherence, unity and structure. Good written language instruction will also enhance thinking, organization skills, as well as reading comprehension.
