Description: Perhaps the most touching writing comes from strong emotion. This workshop explores how we as teachers can create productive spaces for even young children to work through emotion in writing practice in the classroom. We will explore our emotions via mindfulness exercises and theater games as well as explore strategies for constructing independent writing time and writing share time that privilege students’ facilitation of strong emotions into powerful creations of expression.

Participants of this workshop will:
• Experience and learn strategies for constructing spaces for students to transform painful emotions to power through their writing
• Participate in mindfulness exercises and theater games you can use with students to explore emotions and support the classroom community
