Webinar: Differentiated Writing Instruction for ABE/GED Students

A recording of the LINCS Webinar: Differentiated Writing Instruction for ABE/GED Students is now available.

The webinar was conducted by Mary Ann Corley, Ph.D., principal research analyst for the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and director of the Teaching Excellence in Adult Literacy (TEAL) project.

How do you manage writing instruction in a class with ABE/GED students of diverse ability levels, and with diverse interests, needs, and learning profiles? How do you convince your students of the value of engaging in pre-writing activities before they begin to draft their essays? Strategies for differentiating writing instruction and ways to encourage student to use pre-writing activities were offered during the webinar.
