Course Description

In the first course of our expository training series, teachers will dive into expository foundations. The course will begin with thorough prompt analysis, focusing on the difference in thesis writing depending on the three types of WHY prompts. Participants will experience introductions, brainstorming, organizing of thoughts/ideas, developing thoughts/ideas, and HAT conclusions. Through tactile-kinesthetic games and activities, participants will leave with a solid Expository foundation, a variety of strategies, and graphic organizers that will help their students succeed in both assesments and life-time writing.

Key concepts covered include:

  • Prompt Analysis
  • Brainstorming
  • OCTO
  • Main Body Development
  • Altruistic CAFE
