with David Chapple
For: teachers of English
Focus area: students with low literacy levels
Teaching creative writing as part of a crowded curriculum can be difficult, but can also be a powerful transformational experience. This workshop provides new approaches to engaging students across all literacy levels in innovative writing and reading projects.
In this engaging workshop, educators will learn comprehensive strategies to connect students with writing, at all literacy levels, and guide them towards tangible learning outcomes.
