Take an Inquiry Stance in Writing Workshop

facilitated by Lisa Burman


"An inquiry approach to genre study repositions curriculum as the outcome of instruction rather than as the starting point."

Do you embrace an inquiry approach to other areas of learning, but aren't sure if (or how) you bring this into your Writing Workshop? 


Then this full-day workshop is just for you! 


Lisa Burman will lead you in your own inquiry, modelling how to facilitate and guide thinking and dialgoue about the decisions writers and illustrators bring to their work.
