New DVD!

My DVD on writing conferences,  How Can I Support You?  is available now from Stenhouse. You can view a free preview clip online.

I am very happy with the outcome of this project… none of the conferences are “perfect”, but, I believe that no conferences are perfect. I do my best as a teacher/learner to listen as much as I can to what kind of support I can offer my students. I think this comes through in the DVD. I definitely want to teach all of my writers something, but I want to meet them where they are so I know what they are ready to hear and to try.

The DVD features conferences with 3rd grade essay writers and 5th grade narrative writers. One of the conferences is in a guided writing format, and there is also a peer conference between two students.

I hope the DVD can help teachers to be more confident with their conferences!
