A Writer’s Notebook presents as an essential resource for teaching writing. It is a safe place for writers of all ages to harvest and experiment with ideas and launch more in depth writing projects. Teaching effectiveness in the writing classroom is greatly enhanced when teachers model and demonstrate how writers use a notebook to explore writing ideas.
As a writer and educator, Alan Wright has maintained writer’s notebooks for more than three decades. In this workshop Alan will share a range of strategies to stimulate writing through the use of notebooks and how student and teacher voices emerge from writing in such places.
Alan is a contributing author to Teaching Comprehension, (Aussie Interactive). Alan’s latest book, Searching For Hen’s Teeth (Poetry for children) was released late 2014. His previous book, Igniting Writing-When A Teacher Writes was published by Hawker Brownlow Education, 2011.
