Are you looking for ways to help your students move from just knowing about academic writing to actually being able to do academic writing?

Strategies will include how to develop and organize discovery activities, how to run effective peer review sessions, how to use models of academic writing in class, how to help students read with a purpose, and how to use rubrics effectively.
