  1. Renew! Become a Better - and More Authentic - Writing Teacher

    When was the last time you shook up your writing instruction? This book is built on the premise that our students are ever-changing, and so is our global landscape. While there's nothing inherently wrong with relying on instructional strategies that have worked in the past, it challenges writing teachers to rethink and revise their practice regularly, leading to the renewal of their professional lives. By looking at whether a practice matches students' needs and interests, examining whether it fits into what we know about children and learning, and then adjusting our teaching accordingly, we can nurture students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers and risk takers in the writing classroom and beyond.
