"How many sentences should our paragraphs be?" "Do we have to write this in PIE?" If you've heard these questions from your students but aren’t sure how to answer them, this session is for you. Research shows that students have trouble applying skills learned in one context to other contexts, and the same goes for writing: students learn to write in English class but may not apply these skills well to their writing assignments in history, science, math, foreign language, or elective classes. This session explains the English department PIE writing method and will suggest ways to adapt it outside of the English department. Learn to use the language your students already know to improve their writing on everything from a 4-sentence discussion board post to a full essay.
