Rozlyn Linder: When Students Apply Writing Moves To Their Real Lives


Roz Linder spent a lot of time teaching her students how to elaborate and how to use moves in their writing to convey a point of view. If you want to appear unbiased, she taught them, you might use a third-person point of view. In today's video post, you'll learn how Roz's students took their writing knowledge and used it in their real lives, making for a great, yet slightly awkward, moment in Roz's teaching.


The Big Book of Details: 46 Moves for Teaching Writers to Elaborate comes out in March 2016. Click here to learn more.
