Title

Naming, Knowing, and Being: Vocabulary and Language in Successful Writing Classrooms

Abstract

The presenter argues that language capacity—like professional dress—stands as perhaps our most crucial pedagogical tool in helping to see writing as a means of discovery, aggrandizement, reward, and even play. This session provides participants with strategies for engaging students at both the college and pre-college levels in linguistic curiosity that enriches writing, classroom community, reading, thinking, and other literate acts.
