An active and reflective experience of process writing within multiple genres and multimodal literacies with classroom applications.
The M.Ed. in Language and Literacy requires students to take a writing instruction methods class. Our M.Ed. students range from early childhood teachers through high school teachers. The writing course requirement has been met in the past with two options. One of these courses, EDEL 771 only addresses elementary and middle school level students. EDTE 760 focuses mainly on writing workshop and teacher demonstrations. Neither course has a specific goal of introducing students to multimodal and multigenre writing. Our proposed course will offer an additional option as it has been designed to address 21st century writing issues through a focus on multimodal and multigenre texts including digital texts. This is different from EDEL 771 and EDTE 760, which focus on developing student identities as authors and providing feedback as students draft their writing. In contrast, the new course, EDRD 700 will explore writing through different media and genres. It will focus on current theories of writing as multimodal, incorporating digital, visual, print, and other modes, while critically exploring writing classrooms as they currently exist. The addition of a third option will meet the various needs of P-12 educators, who will be able to choose among the three writing courses to meet the writing instruction requirement inthe Language & Literacy M.Ed.

Approved with the following changes:
The grading scale has to go to F.
There needs to be at least a "tentative topical outline" provided. CTE provides templates for various meeting schedules. Take a look here: http://www.sc.edu/about/offices_and_divisions/cte/teaching_resources/syllabus_templates/index.php
Revise the statement on plagerism. Delete the language about the instructor placing a letter in the studnet's file. Refer to the office of academic integrity.
