About this title

Synopsis:

Although conferences appear to be informal conversations, they are in fact highly principled teaching interactions designed to move writers along learning pathways. Used strategically, conferences can be powerful interventions that address individual writing needs. Carl Anderson's Strategic Writing Conferences is a curriculum resource and diagnostic guide for writing teachers looking to use conferences to move young writers another step forward. These conferences will enhance your current writing curriculum and help you confer with greater purpose and effectiveness.   Components * The Teacher's Guide outlines the principles that shape Carl's approach to conferring and provides tools for diagnosing common writing problems. * Three conference books present over one hundred conferences organized around three stages of writing - identifying topics, crafting drafts, and polishing finished projects. Each book opens with a diagnostic guide that helps you locate a conference that addresses a student's particular area of need. * Two Carl on Camera DVDs provide video-based professional development support. 1 On Introducing Strategic Writing Conferences Carl explains the elements of an effective conference, conferring concepts, and ways to assess young writers. 2 On Modeling Strategic Writing Conferences eleven full length conferences let you eaves drop on Carl as he confers with students at various stages of the writing process.   To learn more visit us at www.strategicwritingconferences.com
