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. Print Creates Barriers for Talented Writers As K-12 programs push for proficiency, the world continues to demand something different. Something more.
