Completed: Oakland Schools - MI Teacher Research Coll.

Posted on: December 12, 2013

Oakland Schools and MSU are partners in an English Language Arts project that will include 30 teachers and their students from various places around the state. The project provides a specialized online, cloud-based writing software package to participating teachers and their students, along with professional development for the teachers. The cloud based software supports informational and argumentative writing in a group context, i.e., writing for informational and persuasive purposes with a high value placed on two fundamental workplace skills: communicating and offering feedback for students and while collecting data about student writing that teachers can use for assessment.
