6 Goodies from Today’s Writing Workshop

I attended a great workshop today titled “Writing Across the Curriculum: A Tool for Thinking and Learning.” Our speaker was Kathy Egawa and I really enjoyed her presentation, especially the books and websites she recommended.

Two websites really stood out to me, and I think anyone who’s interested in teen literacy will find a goldmine of material there:

I also took down the names of several books that I will be ordering from Amazon.com:

All in all I’d say it was a very fruitful workshop, with some valuable tips and resources for me to ponder over this summer.  If you were at the workshop today, here is a link to the book I mentioned called Made to Stick.

    Reading Don’t Fix No Chevys is by Jeff Wilhelm, one of my favorite professors! He’s an amazing instructor and a great writer. Teaches at Boise State, used to be a jr. high English teacher. He inspired me to be interested in teaching at the jr. high level. Absolutely one of the most amazing courses I’ve ever taken. He’s a really cool guy – we ended the course at his house, where he made us breakfast. 🙂 You’ll like this book. His stuff is fascinating, illuminating, and useful.
