Read in November, 2008

I breezed throught the first half of this book which focused on using your own writing experiences to develop curriculum for writing workshop. The second half of the book discussed using the same process with texts be professional authors to develop curriculum. Overall, it was very useful for me at the point I am at with my own teaching of a writing workshop. It was reaffirming of some of the things I was already doing, but also provided some direction for what I should work on next and support to help me improve on what I'm already doing.
