INTERACTIVE SESSIONS:  Presentations at the Writing Matters conferences are practical and participant driven. Teachers leave Writing Matters IV with effective and engaging ways to use writing in their classrooms, no matter the content area or level (K-16 and across the curriculum).


Proposals are invited from teachers who can share interactive ways to work in:

-new genres for classroom writing and storytelling

-propose ways to to hold school-wide or beyond-school writing

-identify small, subtle ways to sneak in writing that will help students focus and reflect

-showcase ways to use digital writing media

-ways to make writing collaborative

-links between content areas (art and writing, literature and history, etc)

-“creative” ways to have students write

All sessions will allow audience participants to write, talk and collaborate.
Writing Matters is open to all grade level teachers K-16 and across the curriculum.

FORMAT:  The most common format is for teacher-presenters to lead either singly or in a team of two.  Roundtable discussions of 4-6 teachers on a relevant topic are also encouraged, but be sure to identify a chair who will organize the session, and describe how you’ll have participants (and leaders!) write in the session.   In all sessions, the audience and presenters are predominantly classroom teachers and writers.
