Write's Workshop: Maintaining Social Connection in Remote Learning
Nunnery, Brandi; Kissel, Brian; Schrodt, Katie
Childhood Education, v97 n2 p52-59 2021
In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic brought great changes to classrooms and students around the world. As the virus swept into cities and communities, students were swept out of their routines--experiencing many sudden and profound losses. In one urban school district in the United States, elementary students lost the writing communities they had spent the previous seven months fostering through a face-to-face Writer's Workshop. Tapping into the potential of Zoom to create virtual spaces where users can connect, the first author decided to create an online Writer's Workshop. With careful planning and intention matched with powerful teaching practices, any learning environment (whether in person or online) can be interesting and engaging. The online workshop described in this article was grounded in the powerful practice, the rituals and routines, of Writer's Workshop.
