REGISTER: Preparing to Teach Integrated Reading and Writing

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) has mandated the integration of reading instruction and writing instruction into one course. This training offers philosophies, techniques, and suggestions for instructors qualified to teach INRW and who are making the transition from teaching reading or writing in stand-alone courses to teaching integrated reading and writing courses. The goal of this training is to enable instructors to create an INRW course while incorporating Themes, Informational Texts, Low-Stakes Writing, Just-in-Time Teaching, and Portfolios into their curriculum.


Integrated Reading & Writing: Training Resources

This online training consists of five units that will provide instructors qualified to teach INRW with everything they need to develop their own integrated reading and writing curriculum for developmental students. Faculty will be able to create Integrated Reading & Writing (INRW) courses that will better prepare developmental students for success in college classes.
