Date: April 14, 2018

Instructor: Dr. Bob Fecho, Professor at Teachers College Columbia University and former Co-Director of the Red Clay Writing Project

Schedule: The workshops will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

Location: UGA Gwinnett Campus, 2530 Sever Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30043

Cost: $45

Description: As you teach, invariably you encounter wobble moments, those instances where a student says or does something that causes you to stop and pay attention. These moments, if captured in a narrative and reflected on systematically, can provide profound insight into how you teach and how your students learn. In this workshop, we will explore wobble moments, examine examples of narratives depicting such moments, provide time for you to write your own wobble story, and give you experience using an oral inquiry process to help you gain multiple perspectives on your classroom. In addition, we will explore the STORRI website (http://edblogs.columbia.edu/storri) as a possible destination for sharing wobble stories. Open to teachers of all subject areas and grades.
