Event description

Description

What happens when we make relevancy a centerpiece for the ELA classroom? We honor student choice and use texts, materials and assignments that students think are important. What are the specific strategies and tools of the trade teachers use to help this happen? Please join the NYCWP for a two-part experiential workshop to explore these ideas with us.

Breakfast will be provided.

If your principal would like to pay for your registration, please contact Emmy Williamson: emmy@nycwritingproject.org




Session I: Talking Back to Tough Texts in Tough Times

What happens when you bring a tough text and talk about tough subjects in class? Teachers used very specific poetry, Ta-Nehesi Coates’ Between the World and Me, and some additional works of fiction as a springboard to read, write and talk about race, violence, and our visions of the present and for the future of America. This session will explore interactive, multi-genre gallery walks and various other key reading, writing, and revision strategies and the resulting student work. Participants will read, write, and share ideas together.

Facilitated by Milosh Marinovich who teaches ELA at Gotham Collaborative High School in the Bronx and JoAnna Bueckert-Chan who works as a NYCWP Teaching Consultant at various sites.

Session II: Responding to Literature, Both Contemporary and Classic, with Voice and Choice

This session will explore various ways to consider and incorporate student choice by examining our ideas around text selection, author selection, assignment design, non- linear drafting, and opening-up and reconsidering the ways we read the classics. We will write, read, discuss student work samples and share our ideas together.

Facilitated by Annie Thoms who teaches ELA at Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan and JoAnna Bueckert-Chan who works as a NYCWP Teaching Consultant at various sites.
