ERWC 3.0 Update - Professional Learning

This two-day, 12-hour workshop series provides a preview of the new edition exclusively for teachers who have been previously certified in the CSU ERWC at the high school level. (Certified teachers have attended 24 hours of ERWC Introductory Course.)

This professional learning is intended to be an active experience providing hands-on practice with the revised ERWC curriculum. Teachers will explore the revised course design, including updated key concepts, and selected modules, and will receive digital access to the published ERWC 3.0 modules. Aligned with the California Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy, the courses emphasize the in-depth study of expository and literary reading, writing, speaking, and listening, using an inquiry-based, rhetorical approach. Both courses at grades 11 and 12 are approved as a “B” course satisfying the English subject requirement for UC and CSU admission. High schools may opt to offer the grade 11 course, the grade 12 course, or both.

Teachers attending this workshop will:

  • Identify features of effective ERWC classrooms as reflected in the ERWC Assignment Template and Key
  • Review ERWC pedagogy and key concepts
  • Investigate rhetorical reading, writing, and inquiry processes
  • Explore the ERWC 3.0 course design, new module overviews, and ELA/Literacy Standards to make decisions about ERWC 3.0 in their classrooms
  • Examine specific ERWC 3.0 modules
  • Select modules to teach and begin planning for implementation
