Our publisher, Stenhouse, is hosting a Summer Writing Blogstitute starting on Wednesday, July 6th.  Ruth and I are two of the seven authors contributing essays about the teaching of writing for the Stenhouse Blogstitute.  Ruth is writing about celebrating writers while I’m writing about student-initiated writing conferences.  The other Stenhouse authors who are participating are:

  • Kate Messner, the author of Real Revision, will share about teaching students how to critique writing.
  • Julie D. Ramsay, author of “Can We Skip Lunch and Keep Writing?”, will write about providing students with an authentic reason to write
  • Carolyn Coman, author of Writing Stories, will help you figure out how to make time for your own writing.
  • Peter Lourie and David Somoza, the authors of Writing to Explore, will help us understand how an adventure essay can be an alternative to a research paper.

  1. I think this is a brilliant idea for summer professional development, and I am so glad you are part of it! I heard about it through Stenhouse and was so excited to see you were bring featured. Love it!


  2. This is fabulous! I am home this summer helping my son recuperate from a serious illness (no TC Summer Institute, alas!) and am looking for ways to keep the learning curve going … this is definitely going on my calendar!
