Writing Matters Conference
Writing with Hope
Saturday, October 16, 2021
All presenters are regional teachers who successfully use writing to help kids learn.
Proposal from teachers due September 15, 2021.
We always teach writing with hope: We hope that students will communicate, surprise themselves, pass the test, sometimes just put words down on the page.
Writing’s unique relationship to learning can emerge in any class.
This year’s Writing Matters conference at SUNY Cortland sponsors interactive, writing-rich sessions that explore how we can: connect to a class through writing,
make this crucial year’s education matter, and help students to find their voice and a purpose for writing beyond the grade.
How to Participate
You can propose to share an interactive, writing-based lesson or a panel session.
Attend and simply participate in the workshops and panels on effective ways to use writing.
Support provided by the:
National Writing Project, the Empire State Writing Project Network
Cincinnatus Teacher Center, Dryden Teachers' Center, Cortland County Teacher Center
