Cruz_unstoppable_2680

From dealing with writing workshop skeptics to working with students both gifted and challenged, and of course combating that eternal barrier—lack of time—The Unstoppable Writing Teacher offers tried-and-true strategies to address and overcome obstacles. 

For the struggles unique to you, author Colleen Cruz helps you identify your own individual roadblocks. "We can’t solve all the problems we’re faced with in writing instruction," she promises, "but we can choose how to respond to them. And our responses will make all the difference."

In this video, Colleen discusses how writing can be a tool for thinking. If you keep writing, something good will come of it. Your mind will sharpen.
