Writing With and For Your Students: A Workshop-Based Approach

922.01 (2 credits) 

July 8-12th, 8:15am-2:30pm in person

Instructor: Ryan Bani Tahmaseb

In this immersive workshop, we’ll explore the transformative impact of modeling and sharing our own writing process with our students. Through writing exercises, selected readings, and collaborative discussions, we’ll navigate the balance of being both a mentor and fellow writer in the classroom. Throughout the workshop, we will select and complete writing assignments from our own curricula and immerse ourselves in drafting and sharing our progress and final copies. We will craft both exemplary and intentionally subpar examples of writing in the specific genres that we teach, creating ready-to-share mentor texts and corresponding lessons. This approach will also help us demystify the drafting and revising processes for our students and model the vulnerability required to share original writing in a group setting. This workshop is designed for educators who are excited to embark on, or continue, their own writing journeys while embodying the creative process for and with their students.
