Table of Writing assessment focuses and points to remember The National Strategies. Instructional Strategies for Kindergarten and the Primary Grades The mission of public schooling is to offer every child full and equal educational opportunity regardless of the background, education, and income of the child's parents.
Much focus continues to be on reading, though a recent review on writing tasks and strategies in content-area literacy (Miller er al., ) provides a systematic foundation for further research in the area of writing.

The course focuses on the advanced strategies needed for all students, including ELLs and those with special needs, to fully participate in lessons, meet social studies content standards and increase academic language proficiency.
