Good episode? Give it some love!
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!
