Literacy Cafe: Making Writing Authentic
Daniels, Erika
Voices from the Middle, v14 n3 p12-19 Mar 2007
The "Literacy Cafe," a celebration of genre study and student writing, offers students (and visitors!) a positive environment in which to engage in reading and discussion of writing without self-consciousness or fear of criticism. It works because students learn to recognize writing as a learning tool and a relevant, authentic skill in the real world. Daniels walks us through the preparation, context, and execution of this sound and successful strategy.
