Editorial Reviews

Review

"What are you making?"  Guided by her own listening and curiosity, Stockman honors the maker-in-the-writer, offering specific ways teachers can invite young writers more deeply and fully into their own writing process and into greater writing communities as well.  Offering suggestions for using new materials in old ways, thoughtful questions, and specific tips for tinkering and finding new audiences, this refreshing book is inspiring and practical in equal measure. 
---Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, Author and Teacher
________________________________________________________________________
Make Writing should be a part of all professional libraries, primarily because it keeps students at the heart of practice. It is much more than a collection of strategies - Angela Stockman's work can help writing teachers to make the critical shift from focusing on the writing to focusing on the writer. Make Writing can help to counter major misconceptions about the writing process that exist in our schools and could help to eliminate the formulaic writing approaches that plague instruction. By re-thinking writing as making, Angela also provides specific strategies to foster creative thinking and collaboration. With each "hack" Angela provides specific and implementable first steps and guidelines that can engage children in meaningful and innovative thinking. This book is for the courageous and curious teacher. Throughout, Angela encourages teachers to investigate their students and their practice - she supports action research and places teachers in a powerful position to take ownership of classroom practices and make change beside their students.
---Diane Cunningham, Senior Consultant, Learner-Centered Initiatives, Ltd.

From the Author

Writing this book was truly the adventure of a lifetime. It began when I brought a small group of kids together to begin writing in the summer of 2008. Back then, we knew nothing of making and learning, and our workshop was indistinguishable from many others. Today, the WNY Young Writers Studio is a thriving community of teachers and writers from K-12 classrooms who investigate the influence of making on writing and share what they're learning along the way. This has completely transformed my understanding of what it means to teach.
