Main Image for On the Road
The Institute for Writing and Thinking invites you to join us On the Road. IWT's “Writer as Reader: Discovering New Ways into the Text” workshops will be offered at three sites in 2017: the Francis Parker School in Chicago, IL; and two locations (TBA) in California. 

IWT workshops invite readers to find their own ways into a text. Working with diverse writing-to-read strategies, workshop participants discover what they bring to the text, what is noticeable in the text and what is inferred, and what questions the text poses.
 
This year we will include sessions on novels, poetry, nonfiction, historical documents, STEM texts, and other media. As educators have come to expect, these workshops focus on putting texts into conversations with other texts, with historical events, and digital media.  The “Writer as Reader” workshops also model writing and reading activities that can focus class discussion, help students engage with difficult material, and emphasize the social character of all learning.
