Writing, Redefined: What is writing?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Writing, Redefined is the bold promise from Shawna Coppola for what writing instruction can become in our classrooms. With a voice part savvy expert and part Rock and Roll, Shawna disrupts the writing canon with beauty, humor, joy, and justice. She reminds us that since the cave paintings, humans have been making their marks on the world in shapes, sounds, movements, and colors, and not just flat letters on a page. Every child can join the writing club by making the magical, multimodal compositions Shawna shares.” – Katherine Bomer

“Shawna Coppola brings an artistic, cinematic eye to the examination of our historical practices and beliefs rooted in the teaching of writing. Her unique artist-as-writer perspective opens the door for a more inclusive, nuanced conversation around writing composition and authorial intent. Writing, Redefinedis a timely, smart, and joyful call to join alongside our students as they compose all the texts of their lives in this shared world.”  – Maggie Beatie Roberts

“As I read Shawna Coppola’s utterly convincing, Writing Redefined, I recalled that the word ‘text’ has the root meaning of ‘weave’, as in ‘textile.’ Writers weave genres, images, sounds, formats, and increasingly modes of publication—it’s always some kind of mix.  Students should have the same options. In this book, Shawna dangles before us delicious possibilities that will help all students find a way into The Literacy Club and bring instruction into the 21st Century.”  –Thomas Newkirk, Professor emeritus at the University of New Hampshire and author of Misreading Masculinity: Boys, Literacy, and Popular Culture (Heinemann)

“It's time to expand our thinking when it comes to students as readers and writers. They are consumers and creators! Shawna helps us see why we need to make this shift and how to broaden the opportunities students have to show us what they know and can do.” —Jennifer Vincent
