You can put into the course as much time as you like. Many of the lessons include writing exercises for you to complete as if you are the student. Of course, if you actually do the exercises, you will learn the most. There will be opportunities for you to practice strategies with students. I’m even going to ask you to do a thing or two that might be out of your comfort zone. The more you engage with the material, the more of the actual work you do, the more you will learn. You can be passive and learn a little; you can be active and walk away confident that you can guide your students to be better writers.
