About This Course

Teaching Writing in the Digital Age examines the student writing process, from pre-writing activities such as brainstorming, through drafting, research, revision, and publishing. Using the free SAS Writing Navigator as a guide and tool, the course provides instruction and review of key components of student writing, along with examples of digital resources that support students in the composition process. Each course session will require approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
