Building Student Agency and Authenticity through Writing

Focus Area: Student-Centered Literacy


Phase: Targeted Support

Available Now


This workshop can support teachers to think about a way to make writing more efficient and authentic by creating systems that put the ownership of writing back on to students.  By doing this, we can integrate writing more seamlessly into our learning environments and sustain it over time.  Teachers will define the components of a student-driven writing system, explore resources and strategies with a lens of flexible learning and then reflect and build an actionable plan to make this a reality in their classroom.


This workshop is designed for teachers in K-12 classrooms and support staff.
