How can you migrate your tried and true face-to-face teaching practices into an online environment? This is the core question that Scott Warnock seeks to answer in Teaching Writing Online: How and Why. Warnock explores how to teach an online (or hybrid) writing course by emphasizing the importance of using and managing students' written communications. Grounded in Warnock's years of experience in teaching, teacher preparation, online learning, and composition scholarship, this book is designed with usability in mind. Features include how to manage online conversations, responding to students, organizing course material, core guidelines for teaching online, and resource chapter and appendix with sample teaching materials. More than just the latest trend, online writing instruction offers a way to teach writing that brings together theoretical approaches and practical applications. Whether you are new to teaching writing online or are looking for a more comprehensive approach, this book will provide the ideas and structure you need.
