Writers in Residence: Teaching Writing to Children

September 23, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am

Four professional writers from the Missoula Writing Collaborative will read their student’s work and discuss their experiences teaching writing to students of various ages. They will discuss what types of  “triggering” exercises they use, what techniques they use to help shy or “blocked” students write poetry. The writers will also discuss working to coordinate content with classroom teachers and strategies for maintaining classroom control.  They will also discuss the effects of creative writing on the students they work with. http://sched.co/7v9o
