Everyone is a Writer! -- The Growth Mindset in Writer's Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How many times have you said or you have heard a colleague say, “I’m not a good writing teacher” or “Everyone is not a writer?” This is a fixed mindset where teachers are selling themselves and their students’ abilities short. Are you ready to challenge yourself with a growth mindset as a writer? Everyone can write and everyone should write. In this session, you will explore how to implement the work of Carol Dweck’s research of growth mindset to create a Writers’ Workshop which will empower your students to achieve as writers, improve in all areas of academics, and even boost their social-emotional well-being.
Come and assess your own mindset as a writing instructor, explore the belief that everyone is a writer, and fill your toolbox with resources to develop a strong writing community that engages in meaningful communication, embraces a challenge, sets goals, and gives reflective feedback. Are you ready to change your mind or strengthen what you already know- EVERYONE IS A WRITER!
