IWT Writer as Reader Workshops

[IWT Writer as Reader Workshops]
IWT’s Writer as Reader workshops model writing practices that support close reading and Common Core standards in all subjects, and invite secondary and college teachers to consider “writing to read” as a central classroom practice, one that shows rather than tells students how writing clarifies meaning in literary, historical, and nonfiction texts. 

Workshops include:

1. Epistolary Meditations on Race in America: Between the World and Me and “My Dungeon Shook”
2. “Suit the Action to the Word, the Word to the Action”: Macbeth on Stage and Page
3. Writing Ourselves into the Journey: Homer’s Odyssey and Daniel Mendelsohn’s An Odyssey
4. Call and Response: Heart of Darkness and Season of Migration to the North
5. Lord of the Flies: Rethinking Survival
6. Hearing God’s Trombones
7. The Flint Water Crisis and Restorative Justice in the Classroom: The Poisoned City and Justice on Both Sides
8. A Street in Bronzeville: Gwendolyn Brooks and the Chicago Black Renaissance
9. Remembering Differently: Reading, Writing, and Rewriting History in Multimodal Literatures
10. Reading/Writing Metamorphosis: Ovid and Kafka in the Anthropocene
