I will be on a “Writerly Lives” panel with Melissa Guerrette, Elly Swartz, Minh Le, Erin Soderberg, and Liesl Shurtliff.
How can classrooms be transformed into thriving writing communities that reflect authentic writing conditions and support students’ development as writers? Student writers should develop their writing identities in environments that welcome exploration and inquiry about what it means to BE a writer in addition to learning how to write.
Moderated by a teacher-writer, this diverse author panel will share their approaches to planning, writing, revision, and incorporating feedback, discussing challenges commonly encountered by both professional and student writers. The panel will offer concrete strategies, tools, and tips from their own writing lives that educators can take back to their classrooms.
