As I mentioned two days ago, in addition to teaching high school during the day, I also teach an ESL Methods class to teacher credential candidates at California State University, Sacramento.
Next semester, I have also insanely agreed to teach a content literacy class to credential candidates at the University of California, Davis.
I’ve got a good handle on writing in Social Studies and English classes and, in preparation for the course, am reading up on writing in math and science classes. Two days ago, I published The Best Resources For Writing In Math Class. Yesterday, I posted The Best Resources For Writing In Science Class.
Even though, as I mentioned, I feel I’m pretty experienced in writing and Social Studies (since I teach both English and Social Studies classes), I thought it couldn’t hurt my credential students or me if I created a similar list for that subject.

Here’s the beginning of a list on writing in social studies (I’ve also including some reading resources). Feel free to share your own suggestions:
