Handouts

IWT workshops are experiential in character, inviting participants to learn by doing and by reflecting on the reading and writing activities that form the substance of each workshop. Participants also receive readings that provide background to the theories of learning and writing and offer a context for a deeper understanding of specific workshop strategies. They also receive summaries or outlines of the basic IWT writing strategies that most participants encounter first in either Teaching Writing and Thinking or Writing to Learn, but which are part of all IWT workshops. One of these handouts is available below, to give you a small taste of an IWT workshop.
