About This Workshop
Developing Writers: A Workshop for High School Teachers is a video workshop for grade 9-12 writing and language arts teachers, consisting of eight video programs, a print guide, and this Web site. Use these components for professional development in two-hour weekly group sessions, or on your own.

If you participate in this workshop, you will grow professionally as you:

  • Watch videos of your peers working to create classrooms where students actively learn to write.
  • Talk about the ideas and practices you see demonstrated in the videos—both in person and online.
  • Keep a workshop journal, where you can reflect on your own progress toward creating the kinds of writing community you see in the videos.
  • Begin to use activities and ideas presented in the workshop in your own classes.
