F326. Caucus for K-12 Teachers of Creative Writing

E147-148, Oregon Convention Center, Level 1
Friday, March 29, 2019
6:00 pm to 7:15 pm

 

The caucus creates a space where teachers in K–12 schools, as well as those who work part-time with young writers, can share their classroom experiences with the hopes of helping one another understand the complex and diverse needs of young writers in the 21st century. The meeting will feature presentations by caucus members to help generate discussion around issues of pedagogy, and how to build a creative writing curriculum that is accessible to students no matter their identity or background.
