Red Clay Writing Project Saturday Morning Series, December 2, 2017
Teachers as Writers: Building a Powerful Culture of Writing with Your Colleagues

Date: December 2, 2017

Instructor: Tanya Hudson, Teacher Consultant

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: In this workshop, we will explore the premise that we can become more powerful teachers of writing if we are writers ourselves. By engaging in and reflecting on our own creative practice, we can better model the thinking and writing process for our students, we can develop deeper awareness of and empathy for our students' struggles as writers, and we can create an atmosphere of authenticity and community in our writing classrooms. During the workshop, participants will:

• Examine research and rationales supporting the premise that teachers who write are more effective teachers of writing.

• Reflect on their own levels of comfort with writing.

• Dig into resources for developing themselves as writers.

• Explore strategies for building a culture of writing within their learning communities.
