Let’s get ready to launch a year of making and writing.

We make inside of writing workshops to elevate the process. We make to create multimodal products for audiences who will appreciate them, too. Making writing isn’t about ditching what works, though. It’s not about tossing the curriculum you’ve taken care to create with thoughtful intention, and it’s not about ignoring the standards or competencies you’re responsible for attending to, either. It’s about rethinking what writing is and how we might make even better use of the curriculum we’ve created and the resources we love–in service to writers and the audiences they will influence. I’m Angela Stockman, and I’ve helped hundreds of teachers do this work on the ground over the last ten years. I can help you, too. That’s what this course will do.  In this course, participants will:

  • Explore and apply specific tools and strategies in order to create workshops where writing and writers are MADE.
  • Plan a year of instruction.
  • Plan a unit (or more) of instruction.
  • Lesson plan.

Registered participants are able to access this content (<– click there) in THREE DIFFERENT FORMATS by scrolling down on this page. Choose the options that suit you best or take advantage of all of them, if you wish.
