Our goal is to develop independence in young authors
We all have stories to tell. Regardless if our stories are told orally, through body language, or written composition, students need to feel ownership and validation in their work.
As a member of the National Writing Project and a national literacy consultant, it is my goal to share the importance of choice in student writing.
Writing workshop is a model that encourages students to self-select topics of interest while developing young writers as independent authors who write for an authentic purpose and audience.
