Welcome to a new year of content and conversation in Heinemann's PLC Series. This month we focus on the craft of teaching writers—not the writing.
When we provide time and space for our students to be writers, they can immerse themselves in creating something of incredible value: a writing identity.
In this clip from Introduction to Writing Workshop by Stephanie Parsons, we have the pleasure of hearing from a few students about what it means to them to be a writer. There are few things more enjoyable than hearing children share their voice so please enjoy this short clip from her On Demand Course!
