Developing Writers: A Workshop for High School Teachers
A Shared Path (#102)
What kind of atmosphere do students need to grow as writers? This session concentrates on the 'hows' and 'whys' that answer that question. Featured teachers talk about the physical set-up of a writing community, the importance of reading in a writing classroom, and their own roles as co-writers in the community. Teachers react in writing to Judith Ortiz Cofer's assignment: hiding and revealing through language.
