Agility matters. This is what Angela Stockman learned when she left the classroom over a decade ago to begin supporting young writers and their teachers in schools.
What she learned transformed her practice and led to the publication of her primer on this topic: Make Writing: 5 Teaching Strategies that Turn Writer’s Workshop Into a Maker Space.
Now, Angela is back with more stories from the road and plenty of new thinking to share.
“Good writing is good thinking. This is a book about how to think better, for yourself and with others.” –– Dave Gray, Founder of XPLANE, and Author of The Connected Company, Gamestorming, and Liminal Thinking
In Hacking the Writing Workshop: Redesign with Making in Mind, Angela Stockman offers teachers a brilliant and insightful approach to facilitating their students' writing process through making. This book is filled with practical and easy to implement ideas, tools, protocols, and inspiring stories to prepare anyone to design a future-ready workshop. It is a perfect companion piece to Make Writing.
Hacking the Writing Workshop by Angela Stockman is filled with everything you need to make writing in the classroom a true success. This is not just for English teachers, either! Can you imagine the results if entire buildings (or entire districts) implemented these ideas? It would be A-MA-ZING!!! This book is for every teacher, every student, every level. I can't wait to watch my students grow as writers throughout our journey together, and I, too, am looking forward to growing as a teacher alongside of them. Thank you so much for being an inspiration to teachers everywhere. Your hard work and support is very much appreciated! :-)
