Twelve Smooth Stones: Why Teaching Independent Publishing Can Slay the Goliath of Reluctant Writing (12)

Hillari DeSchane Friday, 1:00 - 2:00 pm Sacramento
Why is writing so difficult to teach? Why do so many bright children find writing a chore? Perhaps because so many writing curricula are missing the key piece—a real audience! Writers write to be read, whether they’re writing a book report or a business letter, a fantasy novel or financial analysis. Strong writing is a living conversation between the writer and the reader, not just an exercise between the student and the teacher. Drawing from the story of David and Goliath, award winning writer and independent publisher Hillari DeSchane will share five ways you can use an independent publishing project to help your student overcome reluctance and find a new sense of purpose and joy in writing—writing to be read. An independent publishing track can also be used to teach multiple subjects, and is ideal for multiple student households and homeschool cooperatives.
