The kids who can’t sit still.
The kids who refuse to put down print.
The kids who claim to hate writing.
I’m Angela Stockman.
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.
Perhaps you’ve read one of my books, attended one of my workshops, or even worked with me in a sustained way inside of your school. Maybe you’ve read my blog or connected with me on Twitter or Facebook. If you have, then you know how passionate I am about writing instruction and specifically, integrating making and writing.
And if you have no idea what the maker movement is or how you might begin messing about, that’s okay, too.
I’ve designed this course for you, regardless of your experience level or area of expertise.
I’ve built a beautiful foundation for beginners and brand new content for those who have been following my work for some time. After you register, you will find every module at the very bottom of this page. Whether you teach writing in a middle school workshop, in your high school science classroom, or during your kindergarten literacy block, the strategies that I share will help you better understand, engage, motivate, and move the writers you serve. They’re there, you know. In the making.
Download and you’re ready to go. Each plan is aligned to meaningful learning targets, the elements of craft, and the most essential forms of writing.
Turn your classroom into a makerspace for writers with tinker trays, totes, and tool buckets.
Magic happens when we listen to resistance. I’ll teach you how, and then I’ll show you what this taught me.
Peek over my shoulder, into student work samples, and listen to the feedback I plan to provide.
When does this course begin, and how will I be supported?
