Are you looking for time and space to write?

ENGL 531: Teacher as Writer
June 23 – July 3, 2014
Student Center 302
Dr. W. Douglas Baker

Course Description
ENGL 531, Writing for Teachers, is a two‐week intensive course (9:00 am-3:00 pm daily) that will provide you with the opportunity to write on self‐selected projects, get feedback from peers, and explore processes of such work as writers and as teachers. Based on principles of the National Writing Project (see, the class will encourage you to engage as a community of writers, including selecting topics and genres for particular purposes and audiences and exploring how these practices inform our pedagogy.

Some of you may elect to enroll in the course for the purpose of working on a personal writing project. The class will offer you the time and flexibility to build on your manuscript while learning how to integrate your experiences as a writer with those of your students, or future students. You will be encouraged to read brief selections by other writers and to respond to the writing of your peers; however, much of the time will be devoted to writing.
