The most exciting part this year is the session I am co-chairing with Sarah Andersen for the second year in a row (it was such a success last year, we're hoping to make it an annual session!). We created a session with roundtables of authors with their editors to talk with teachers about their writing and revising process in order to help teachers take on more of an editor role with the student writers in their classrooms. I heard so many ideas to take right back to my classroom and start implementing last year, and I can't wait to hear what this year's group of authors and editors will have to share that will impact my teaching.
|Thank you to all of the amazing publishers who support their authors and editors in attending to make this session possible!|
|The start of the ALAN Workshop is like English teacher's Christmas, and the energy in the room is equivalent!|
