Writing Outside Your Comfort Zone: An Online Learning Experience

Cathy Fleischer and Sarah Andrew-Vaughan

Sponsored through a NWP grant, we’ve created an online learning experience designed to help teachers think about genre study and the Unfamiliar Genre Project (UGP)—concepts we explore in our co-authored text Writing Outside Your Comfort Zone: Helping Students Navigate Unfamiliar Genres. While we’ve completed part one—an online book study—we welcome you to join us this summer as we create our own UFGs and share them with others across the country.
