Every teacher, no matter how competent, sparkling or talented, will meet a student who fails to respond to coaxing, an engaging writing lesson or the most inviting prompt. The teacher sits, tries to make eye contact, and leans closer to the table. Nothing seems to engage this student and the blank paper lies between the two, limp and forlorn.

Our workshop will take you through practical ideas that will inspire and motivate those reluctant writers. We will share books that are great jumping off points for writing, tools that can help you understand your young writers’ identity and writing tasks that offer voice and choice.
