Children's Authors on the Web: Online Sites that Motivate Students to Write

Course Section Description:

Discover the power of author studies to motivate students to read and write. This course uses a problem-based approach to teach the techniques of conducting an author study integrating technology and the Internet. Explore author and other Web sites to collect resources that will introduce your students to many genres while encouraging them to experiment by communicating with others in different forms. You'll create an individual author study you can use as the basis of an ongoing plan to inspire your students to read, write, and use technology effectively.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
