Make Writing: Engaging Your Most Print Resistant Writers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
You know who I’m talking about: The kids who can’t sit still. The kids who refuse to put down print. The kids who claim to hate writing. You aren’t alone in your frustration, you know. Over the last two decades, I’ve worked with so, so many writers like this, in my own classroom and in my writing studio, too. Want to know what the most important thing I learned was? That I had a lot of learning to do.
It all started when I admitted defeat, dropped my pencil and asked, “If you don’t want to write, then tell me: What would you rather be doing?”
That’s when my most resistant writers became my greatest teachers. They taught me a great deal, and I’d love to share my learning with you.
Participants in this session will gain:
  • A deeper understanding of the maker movement and why it’s important to create future-ready writing workshops and classrooms
  • Low budget supply lists and all of the inspiration you’ll need to create tinker trays, totes, and tool buckets with purposeful intention
  • Mini-Lessons and instructional approaches that will help you make great use of those tools while elevating the writing process, craft, and form
  • An awareness of five specific approaches that integrate making and writing in every content area and grade level
  • Promising practices that help transition your most print resistant writers from making to the written word without too much turbulence
