Writing in Education

Education is about serving a diverse population and understanding the physiological, emotional, social, and cognitive needs of students over time. Students of education learn many theories of development and psychology and then practice applying that theory to imagined, lived, or observed experiences in the classroom.

Writing in education is about clear, compassionate communication. Many assignments require describing, analyzing, and then reflecting, which means that writers in education need to be aware of when and how their thoughts and judgments enter a piece of writing. Common writing assignments include the self-reflective LULU assignments, lesson plans, unit plans, and applications of educational theory to field experiences. This webpage provides some useful guidelines as you engage in writing in your education courses.
