Reimagining Revision: Fostering a Writer's Mindset in our Students

Do you groan when you hear your writing students utter the words, “I like it the way it is” about their drafts? We all want our students to embrace revision, but perhaps it should be no surprise, this revision resistance. Revision is messy, challenging, and can feel threatening and frustrating for any writer. So how can we help our students – and ourselves – be more open to it? 

In this course, we will explore the idea of revision not as a single stage in the writing process – a step right after “drafting” and just before “editing” – but as a mindset that’s present through every part of our writing. We will actively cultivate our own mindset stances – including metacognition, perspective-taking, flexible thinking, and risk-taking – as we draft and revise different pieces throughout our week. Chris will share practical approaches teachers can use to make revision engaging, meaningful, and fun for their students, at any level. Participants will develop practices they can weave into their classes’ minilessons and pre-writing, drafting, conferring, and sharing structures. Along the way, we’ll make some manageable but powerful shifts that can foster a writer’s mindset in our students and help them move beyond revision resistance. 

Chris Hall is the author of The Writer’s Mindset and learns everyday about writing and revision alongside his language arts students at Oyster River Middle School in Durham, NH. Over the past twenty years, he has taught in urban, suburban, public, independent, and international schools, where he has helped young writers find authentic purpose, build community, and discover the power of their own words. Chris also served as a Heinemann Fellow, researching innovative writing practices within a cohort of dynamic educators from across the country.

Amplifying Voices, Celebrating Choices: Empowering Student Equity and Change

Pandemic schooling forced us to reconsider many of the “truths'' we held about teaching: when and where learning can happen, that students can only learn from a well-informed classroom teacher, and the notion that the meaning of a novel is fixed and absolute. This break from traditional schooling empowered us to disrupt our curriculum, authentically connect students to each other and their community, and turn their research into art, action, and awareness for social change.  

In this generative course we will identify ways we can take our students’ learning beyond the four walls of our classrooms through slam poetry, disrupting whole-class novels, and promoting student-centered action-research. We will connect with a network of like-minded community members, specifically NH’s Racial Unity Team, and their Arts in Action project. Join us as we navigate how to amplify voices in our curriculum, encourage students to dive deep into real world issues, and share their own lived experiences.   

 

Dennis Magliozzi and Kristina Peterson have been teaching English at Exeter High School since 2008. Kristina has a Masters in teaching from George Fox University and Dennis has an MFA in poetry and is currently enrolled in the Philosophy of Education program at UNH. They co-teach in UNH’s education department and the Writer’s Academy. They are co-founders of Bookshelf Diversity, a statewide grant project designed to get diverse books into the hands of NH students, and are Ambassadors for NH’s Racial Unity Team’s Art in Action project.

Place, Writing, and Multimodality: Playing and Learning in the Places Around Us

Bethany Silva

Imagine your favorite place in the world. What gives this place its magic? Perhaps it’s rural - a rocky beach on the coast of Maine or a mountain you climb each year. Perhaps it’s urban - a city park surrounded by towering skyscrapers or a historical site whose cobblestones transport you back in time. The local places we inhabit impact our understanding of the world and ourselves. Harnessing the power of place within the classroom inspires our students by connecting their learning to real, tangible, purposeful experiences. 

In this course, we will explore public spaces as fuel for our writing, critically examining the stories that define places and the stories that get buried. We will engage with multimodal writing and making as we consider the ways places, too, are texts. We will investigate how other educators have engaged with place-based writing, and we will read, write, and make our own place-centered texts. As we get outside and write, we will be practicing and implementing activities and techniques that you will be able to implement in your own classroom. 

Bethany Silva has spent the past 20 years writing inside and outside with children, young adults, and educators. As a Philadelphia Writing Project Teacher Consultant, she helped establish the National Writing Project/National Park Service partnership, where she ran summer writing camps at Independence National Historical Park and serves with a nationwide group of educators, writers, and National Park Rangers that hosts #WriteOut, a yearly online event where educators, students, and the public explore national parks and other public spaces to connect and learn through place-based writing and sharing.  Dr. Silva is a Research Assistant Professor of Education and the Community Literacy Center Director at the University of New Hampshire. She has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Writing Unbound: Finding a Place for Fiction

While the reading of fiction is at the absolute center of the English/Language Arts, the writing of fiction usually fades out in middle school—if it lasts that long. Yet the desire to write fiction-- to create imagined worlds, characters, and conflicts--doesn’t die. In this short course, we will explore ways to open the door to fiction writing. We will try our hand at short fiction; we will interview teachers who bring fiction (even novel writing) into the classroom; and we’ll talk with students who are avid fiction writers. We’ll even show how fiction writing can support literary analysis.  

Tom Newkirk is a Professor of English, Emeritus at the University of New Hampshire. In his career there he founded the New Hampshire Literacy Institute, the Learning Through Teaching Program, and the Writers Academy—in addition to directing the First-Year writing Program. He is the author of numerous books, articles, and the editor of collections on literacy teaching at all grade levels. His most recent book is Writing Unbound: How Fiction Transforms Student Writers (Heinemann, 2021). In his “retirement” he works as an editor for Heinemann, and for the past 10 years has served on the local school board.
