November One-Day Workshops

November one-day workshops emphasize the connections between reading and writing: Reading gives us access not only to lives not lived but also to ideas we haven’t noticed and to ways of seeing the world not yet encountered. These workshops focus diverse literary and historical texts; each is led by an IWT faculty associate.

The November workshops demonstrate IWT practices that show rather than tell how writing identifies texts’ multiple meanings. These workshops present writing strategies that allow the reader to make both personal and intellectual connections to the texts; support close, imaginative reading; and help students develop an appreciation for the intersections between related but different texts.

Writer as Reader On-site: These, and past Writer as Reader workshops, are available on-site. Click for more information on bringing workshops to your school for teams of teachers, or even entire departments (limit 15 participants).
