For those of you who are interested in learning more about guided writing, check out Sharan A. Gibson’s Article, “An Effective Framework for Primary-Grade Guided Writing Instruction” in the December 2008/January 2009 Issue of The Reading Teacher. There’s even a related lesson plan over at ReadWriteThink that references the article.
I am a literacy consultant who focuses on writing workshop. I've been working with K-6 teachers and students since 2009. Prior to that, I was a fourth and fifth-grade teacher in New York City and Rhode Island.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband and children. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, doing Pilates, cooking, baking, making ice cream, and reading novels.
