She is listening and learning and sharing what she can. Instructional Designer|Author|Independent Consultant.
Beth speaks with Angela Stockman who is an educator, an author and a champion for the power of storytelling in its many forms. She has spent her career being curious about what makes writers struggle and how she could help push young writers to see their capabilities. The conversation starts by discussing Angela’s new book- Creating Inclusive Writing Environments in the K-12 Classroom: Reluctance, Resistance, and Strategies that Make a Difference and how Angela is connected and collaborates with so many school library professionals and other educators in Ontario. Angela explains her thoughts about the role reading has in the writing lives of students and the intertwining of play and storytelling. Angela says that ”[s]tory is not the property of English language arts and English teachers. Story is a power force inside every single industry.” We discuss the cultural reckoning that is happening across the world right now and the importance of bringing in students’ lived experiences to the classroom and valuing many forms of storytelling.Books Mentioned in this EpisodeKeep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad by Austin KleonDesign Is Storytelling by Ellen LuptonBird by Bird by Anne Lamott for The Building Better Writers group on Facebook

In this episode, Melissa interviews Angela Stockman, who is a researcher and author of three books including Make Writing and Hacking the Writing Workshop. Angela shares the research method she uses and how it has changed the way she approaches writing instruction.
Our guest this week is Angela Stockman, author of Hacking the Writing Workshop, Make Writing, and the upcoming Creating Inclusive Writing Environments in the K-12 Classroom. If you can’t tell by her titles, Angela’s passion is writing—sort of. At the heart of Angela’s work with writing is a deep commitment to broaden the ways students are able to make meaning, leveraging a wider variety of tools than just the written word. The education system’s relationship and centering of print is one with a surprising history with some  pretty serious consequences—ones that Angela is trying to rectify with her Make Writing approach. Over the course of today’s episode we’ll be exploring how Maker Writing and Multimodal Composition are approaches to writing that promote  equity, voice, and metaphorical thinking. Angela’s ability to distill and synthesize research and turn it in to classroom practice is second to none, and her knowledge and passion are evident throughout our dialogue. We hope you enjoy!
