Dr. Lynne Dorfman, associate professor of Education, published “Writing Workshop: Engaging Today’s Students With a Model That Works,” which provides K-8 educators strategic advice, tips, and resources to create engaging writing workshop processes for students.

The book includes QR codes for readers to scan so they can watch supplementary instructional videos and glimpses of Dr. Dorfman’s writing workshop in action.

“We need to devote time to writing daily in our elementary schools to develop writing muscles for the larger work in secondary schools,” said Dr. Dorfman. “I think this book promotes a philosophy about writing—that teachers of writers must be teachers who write—in addition to providing a clear structure for classroom instruction, routines, and management.”

“Writing Workshop” is co-authored with author and independent literacy consultant Stacey Shubitz. This is Dr. Dorfman’s seventh publication on writing techniques with Stenhouse Publishers.
