Sparking, Motivating, and Cultivating Young Writers

This episode will inspire you to rethink what writing experiences look like in your classroom! I have a great conversation with Lisa Stringfellow, an educator, and author of “A Comb of Wishes”. This conversation is filled with tools, tips, and stories of how to spark, motivate and cultivate young writers in the classroom. The powerful connection of reading and writing often becomes undervalued in a system that emphasizes quantitative measures over qualitative. We want to expose our students to a variety of opportunities to use their words to express their experiences. Over the years, Lisa has thought of innovative ways to do just that.
