Maker Moves in the Writing Workshop

I spent yesterday working with a group of fabulous writing teachers from all over southern Erie County, and since the bulk of our time was spent examining the development of process and craft in young writers, we did a bit of making ourselves, and we also considered how maker moves enrich a writer’s work and help to resolve certain tensions that plague resistant writers.

The posters below make the best of that thinking, which began at Roy B. Kelley School in Lockport, transparent. The teachers I work with directly use them to inspire the way they coach young writers through their varied processes.

You can access it directly on Canva as well.
