Engaging students with meaningful and relevant conversations about reading and writing.

by Jeff Baxter

Grades 9-12

In this series of videos, I help participants explore using conversations as the centerpiece of reading and writing.

Part One: Introduction

In part one of the workshop, I describe what I mean by a classroom built on meaningful conversations about reading and writing.

Part Two: Language Inventer

In part two of the workshop, I ask participants to share their interpretations of what is happening in a cartoon as a way to demonstrate the diversity of perspectives.

Part Three: Revision Matters

In part three of the workshop, I emphase the importance of mastering and rewarding the process of revision.
