I’m excited to begin making writing with my students, but I’m not sure how to begin.
I hear this often, and I understand the concern underpinning such statements, too.
The beginning matters, and anyone who loves to teach writing and loves workshop especially knows that launch time is where the magic happens.
A great writing workshop launch ignites a fire for writing, and as teachers, we work to intensify those flames all year. It also helps writers establish routines and rituals and especially–a healthy culture–that stokes that fire while ensuring it doesn’t burn out of control.
This is true inside of traditional workshops as much as it is inside of the studios and makerspaces we create for writers. What happens inside of MAKE writing workshops (and why and how) looks a little bit different, though.
So let me plan beside you this summer.
