In this book, Kristen Painter helps you develop the writing teacher in you by uncovering the writer in you. After all, the more you know about writing, the better able you are to show students how it works, what it’s like, and the amazing sense of possibility it can bring you. Inspirational and reflective, yet roll-up-your-sleeves workable, Living and Teaching the Writing Workshop
also contains minilessons that directly apply what you learn in your own writing to your students’ learning by modeling the writing process for them. Slim, practical, and complete with writing invitations for you and your students, this book will help you link theory and practice, find commonalities between your professional and personal selves, and connect you to both your students and your curriculum.
