Agility matters. While our schools push for proficiency, the world continues to demand something
different. Something more. Something that seems ever-changing. The fact is that writing is so much
bigger than print today, and it’s changing shape minute by minute. When we fail to acknowledge the
changing shape of writing and the varied languages, mediums, and modalities that today’s writers
use to communicate their messages, we fail to help our students reach their full potential, too.
Creating a future-ready writing workshop doesn’t mean evading print, but it does require us to
pursue a far greater vision. This session will start the conversation and empower your early
beginnings.
Participants will explore:
● Three layers of design that help teachers transform their classrooms into
makerspaces for writers without spending a fortune
● Agile curriculum frameworks that invite student voice and choice
● Firestarters that integrate making and writing and invite loose parts play
● Instructional approaches that build stamina, elevate complexity, and generate high
quality work
