Teachers Teaching Teachers — Episode 2: Exploring Author’s Craft

Teachers Teaching Teachers: Exploring Author’s Craft in the Digital Writing Workshop
October 7, 2009

In this second episode of our three part series, please join Troy Hicks, author of The Digital Writing Workshop, and Director of the Chippewa River Writing Project at Central Michigan University, as we continue exploring the principles and practices described in the book.

For this second episode, we welcome four Michigan teachers to the conversation as they discuss how they teach the craft of digital writing:

  • Dawn Reed of Okemos High School will discuss how students craft audio essays in the form of podcasts
  • Aram Kabodian of MacDonald Middle School will share his insights on the process of composing digital stories and public service announcements
  • Sharon Murchie of Bath High School will describe how she guides her students through the research process for creating multimedia senior projects
  • Shannon Powell of Central Montcalm Middle School in Michigan will discuss her experiences as a new teacher as she has begun to use digital writing in her classroom, including her recent integration of “SSR with RSS” for a class of reluctant readers

Finally, on October 14th, we will discuss the process of conferring and response to student writers as they create digital texts.

We would invite you to join us on Wednesday at http://EdTechTalk.com/live at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA Wednesdays / 01:00 UTC Thursdays World Times
