Put It Into Practice
The videos, activities, and readings in this workshop illustrate how predictable routines and rituals in a writing workshop foster feelings of safety and community. Now apply what you have learned to develop rituals that you can use in your practice.
New Rituals for Your Classroom
Use the readings, activities, and video examples in this workshop to brainstorm three daily writing workshop rituals or routines that can help your students generate ideas for writing topics or feel more confident about sharing their writing. Be sure to include the following:
- name of each ritual
- goals and benefits of using this ritual in the writing workshop
- any challenges you may face in implementing each ritual and how might you respond
- expected outcomes of each ritual
When you have finished, save your written work to submit as an assignment.
