Write X Tech: Why We Write
Apr 22 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Adam Tramantano, English Teacher, The Bronx High School of Science
“Writing is power.” In this session, we’ll consider the production of a given work of writing as a story that we tell. We often encourage students to think about writing as a process--how is it different to consider writing as a story rather than as a process? We will trace the ways in which writers sometimes include the story of the writing within the writing and the ways in which we can explore the story of the writing process with students.
Turnitin Writing X Tech ( #writingxtech ) kicks off April 18 with a five-day virtual conference featuring webcasts on “The Writing Mindset” and how thinking differently about writing can engage students and set them up for success. K-12 educators, college instructors and students can pick from nine different webcasts offered for free April 18-22, 2016.
