John Steinbeck had this to say about writing: "I have written a great many stories and I still don't know how to go about it except to write and take my chances." Teacher as Writer provides participants with the time and space for writing, the time to take chances, the time to write familiar stories, unknown stories, to write in genres never tried, to take risks never imagined in order to become the best teachers of writing possible. Spend time immersed in reading, writing, conferring, revising, editing, publication, and thoughtful discussions of classroom practice in light of your own writing successes and struggles. Join a community of writers in Teacher as Writer, and explore your own writing - both fiction and non-fiction - and classroom practice in a comfortable and relaxed workshop atmosphere. "This course will make you a better writer if you like to write. If you don't think you are a writer, take this course and become one!"
