RIWP Spring Conference

I just received an e-mail today to find out that my proposal to do a session at the Rhode Island Writing Project’s Spring Conference was accepted. :-) The session’s title I proposed when I submitted my proposal was, “Inspiring Children to Write By Living Like a Writer: Teaching Writing Workshop with Our Notebooks Wide-Open.” The main goal of the session is to hopefully inspire other teachers of writing to live like writers. I truly believe that if want our students to live like writers, WE must live like writers by writing daily, which means carrying our notebooks with us and sharing the pages of our notebooks with our students so they can see that we are practicing what we preach.
