Rozlyn Linder: Reaching The Typically Overlooked Students

detailscover

In the foreword to Rozlyn Linder's newest bookThe Big Book of Details, Harvey "Smokey" Daniels writes, "It's rare for teachers to open up their own heads and demonstrate their own writing, let alone simultaneously explain what mental moves they are using along the way. And there's an extra challenge: we teachers may feel less confident about ourselves as model writers than we do as readers."

That’s why Roz Linder wrote The Big Book of Details. “To help our students use details and elaborate effectively,” she writes, “we need to find out what they want their writing to do, and then show them explicit moves to make it happen.” 

In this video, get to know Roz and how she reaches students we typically overlook—reluctant readers or timid writers—and who might not catch up unless there are explicit strategies in place.

 

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