IWT Writer as Reader One-Day Workshops: November
Campus Center, Multipurpose Room
8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Writer as Reader workshops highlight writing-to-read strategies that foster close reading; invite connections to the text’s cultural, social, economic, and artistic contexts; and help readers develop an appreciation for the connections between different but related texts.

This year we will include sessions on novels, poetry, nonfiction, historical documents, STEM texts, and other media. As educators have come to expect, these workshops focus on putting texts into conversations with other texts, with historical events, and digital media.  The “Writer as Reader” workshops also model writing and reading activities that can focus class discussion, help students engage with difficult material, and emphasize the social character of all learning.
