The Reluctant Writer at Work: Writing tricks and tools, and new ideas to help your workplace writing say what you mean

Our staff participated in two Literacy Workshops facilitated by Marjorie Turner Hollman. We gained a better understanding of how to write simple, clear and accurate daily notes, lesson plans, and unique stories that the children create as they go about their day. Marjorie’s supportive and gentle approach helped our staff feel competent in their own literacy learning.  Thank you, Marjorie!

Do you avoid writing tasks in your job, or find excuses to get others to write what you should take care of yourself? This short course is designed to provide the student with positive writing experiences. The sessions will consist of active writing experiences. Students will produce short pieces, share their writing with fellow classmates, and receive helpful feedback. They will gain a better understanding of what constitutes good writing, and learn simple steps they can take to improve daily writing tasks. This course is designed for people whose work (or schooling) requires them to write.
