I always wanted to teach writing more in my middle school Language Arts classroom but I just didn't know how to do it. The logistics of working through the writing process, let alone using any digital publication tools, with 100+ students was too overwhelming. Working with the students at Young Writers' Camp gave me a place to learn and experiment with the writing process without any extra stress or pressure. I became more confident with my knowledge of the process and digital writing tools which helped me teach writing better in my own classroom. - Laura Cameron, a middle school teacher.
I felt that the different writing tools and strategies that were taught to us during this course was awesome. I think that being able to practice and conference with other teachers made the learning more authentic. The course didn't set out to make everyone expert writers but to listen to different approaches to writing that would be beneficial to your students. - 2017 GCW Participant.
