A11 Reading the Research: Teaching the New Writing
This Reading the Research session examines the book Teaching the New Writing, which showcases the practices of 16 teachers, many of whom are teacher-consultants from local writing project sites, who have made 21st century composing an integral part of their classroom work. Participants will engage in a collaborative reading of selections from the book, followed by group discussions of the ideas raised. Facilitators and participants will explore implications for the work of their local site.
