Faculty Writing Workshop: Two Day

Two Day Lesson Plan Workshop

Upon completion of the workshop, the faculty will be able to use teaching techniques that are immediately transferrable to their classrooms. The faculty members who are selected to participate in the workshop attend a full day of instruction about the teaching of writing, and they create their own practical lesson plans that can be used in the classroom. On day two, they present these lessons, during which time they receive feedback from the workshop facilitators and their peers. The complete lessons will be refined and posted online for other instructors to use in their classes.

Faculty members plan their lessons at a faculty writing workshop.We have conducted these faculty writing workshops in spring 2012, fall 2012, spring 2013, fall 2013, spring 2014, fall 2014, spring 2015, and spring 2016. We have been administering surveys for assessment to the faculty participants, and we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback about the high quality of the workshop with multiple instructors stating that the workshop was so powerful that it changed their instructional techniques.

The workshops have been completed with the ending of the AANAPISI Grant, but the lesson plans created by the participants are still available for use. Check them out below.

Faculty Workshop Lesson Plans

Here you will find all of the lesson plans created and refined during our series of faculty writing workshops. These lesson plans are created by members of the SJSU faculty from several disciplines. After each plan is created, it is submitted to the workshop facilitators (Dr. Linda C. Mitchell and Michelle Hager) for review. Following several revisions, completed lesson plans are approved and posted below.
