Our one-on-one talks with students during writing workshop offer us perfect opportunities to zero in on what each student needs as a writer. As Lead Staff Developer for the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, Carl Anderson has provided hundreds of teachers with the information and confidence they need to make these complex conferences an effective part of classroom practice. Finally, in How's It Going?, Anderson shares his expertise with the rest of us.

For Anderson, the key to a powerful writing conference lies in understanding that it is a conversation with a clear purpose and a predictable structure. This is the best lens through which to view the task of talking about writing. To that end, Anderson shows how we can take what we already know about having effective conversations and use that knowledge. Sample transcripts of conferences with elementary and middle school students in both urban and suburban settings walk us through the process step by step, providing new insight into how ambitious conferences unfold.

Above all, How's It Going? is a practical book. Written in a conversational style, it's filled with lots of useful advice, including an in-depth discussion of the teacher's role in conferences, strategies for teaching students to take an active role, ways to weave in literature, minilessons, classroom management strategies, and responses to the most frequently asked questions about conferring. Along the way, readers will learn new ways of thinking, develop effective techniques, and perfect straightforward strategies. At the same time, they'll grasp the art and logic of conferring, and with this learning in mind, discover for themselves how to confer well.

About the Author:

Carl Anderson is one of the nation's leading experts on teaching writing to students in grades K-12. He dedicates his energies exclusively as an education consultant and writer. Carl recently worked for Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University as a Lead Staff Developer, providing staff development in the teaching of writing grades K - 8. He spent school days in New York City elementary and middle schools demonstrating effective teaching in the writing workshop and coaching teachers. He gave day-long workshops for teachers at Teachers College on launching the writing workshop, conferring with student writers, mini-lessons, and developing curriculum for the writing workshop. As a national consultant, Carl works with schools, districts and educational organizations around the country. He is known for his keynote speeches and courses at writing institutes as well as for his presentations at national conferences. Carl also taught for eight years in the Bronx, New York, Bardstown, Kentucky and Northbrook, Illinois in grades five to eight. In his book, How's It Going? A Practical Guide to Conferring with Student Writers, Carl leads readers through the challenging but essential terrain of learning to confer with student writers. The book includes an in-depth discussion of the teacher's role in conferences, strategies for teaching students to take an active role, ways to weave literature, mini-lessons, classroom management strategies, and responses to the most frequently asked questions about conferring. Carl also authored Assessing Writers and the series Strategic Writing Conferences: Smart Conversations that Move Young Writers Forward Grades 3-6.

Review:

“This is by far the best writing on the conference I have read. It is a book that is far superior to the other texts-including my own.”–Donald M. Murray
