Online Writing Tutoring–Smart Use of Time during LockdownBy Kristina Knobelsdorff, PhDGeneral Education Advice, Writing Training
Schools in CT may be closed indefinitely, but teaching and learning continues, thanks to teacher dedication and innovative technology.
It didn’t take long, though, to realize the challenges with remote learning, like time management.
Writing instruction presents another main challenge for teachers–essentially ensuring that writing assignments lead to genuine learning and don’t devolve into busy work.
Because writing is so vital a skill for college and career success, students can’t really afford to stagnate with their writing skills for the next few months. Especially juniors and seniors in high school preparing for the next phase in their education.
Yet, online courses make less time for writing instruction in general.
