Teaching writing that is relevant to your students and their futures

What kind of writing do we do beyond school? It certainly isn’t the well-known five-paragraph essay or tight iambic pentameter. In today’s workforce, the purpose of writing is to communicate complex ideas specific to career fields. Students need more than simply mastering academic writing, so Teaching Writing From Content Classroom to Career shows how to combine writing instruction teachers already share – language selection, tone, voice, audience, organization, and style – with meaningful writing tasks so students can connect classroom writing to the world of their work and their futures. Authors Maria C. Grant, Diane Lapp, and Marisol Thayre explain ways to show students how writing works in the world of work with

  • Ready-to-go lesson plans focused on relevant, world-of-work writing tasks and formats
  • An overarching rubric of key skills as well as student-self-assessment rubrics to make instruction and implementation crystal clear
  • Downloadable and reproducible tools for both students and teachers for ease of implementation
  • Exemplar mentor texts from the workplace in multiple disciplines that showcase writing’s essential connections to workforce readiness
  • Suggestions for using AI to generate exemplar texts
  • Examples of how to be a successful communicator who knows how and when to move in and out of different modes of language

Full of tools, resources, and strategies that are easy to implement and seamlessly overlay school writing curriculum, this book sets students on the path to academic and career success through writing.
