Utah writing institute offers guidance for teachers


Here is a great article on collaboration among writing teachers in Utah.

It would be a good idea to follow in order to access the information they are sharing on the 21st century.
It might be something we should consider here in Maine, especially the sharing format.

Some Utah teachers will participate this summer in a workshop in which they share resources, lesson plans and technology to help them teach students to write. The Central Utah Writing Project, which began in 2009 and is affiliated with the National Writing Project, will focus this year on digital media. "We've seen a lot of examples on how to bring writing into the 21st century," said Jon Ostenson, a Brigham Young University professor. "We are seeing how to translate traditional writing instruction into new media genres." The Daily Herald (Provo, Utah) (7/7)Bookmark and Share
