Renew!: Become a Better — and More Authentic — Writing Teacher
When was the last time you shook up your writing practice? This passionate book is based on the premise that our students are ever changing, and so our teaching practices should be rethought, revised, and renewed along with them.
By looking at whether a practice matches students’ needs and interests and examining whether it fits into what we know about children and learning and then adjusting our teaching accordingly, we can nurture students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and risk takers in the writing classroom and beyond. The framework of this practical book examine the most pervasive educational practices in writing instruction and to help ask the questions necessary in order to revise those practices so that they are effective for all students. It also offers ideas for how teachers can nurture their own writing lives and thus reinvigorate their instructional practice.
