2016 Eastern Michigan Writing Project Portfolio
In the summer of 2016, I participated in the Eastern Michigan Writing Project Summer Institute for the second time. This time, I returned in the position of the Research Coach. My role was to help guide participants in planning their teacher research proposals for the new school year, and also to help facilitate the program in other ways as the need arose.
Although I had a job in the Summer Institute, I also participated in the writing and in planning for my own research. Here is some of my work:
- Tentative Research Question: What happens when students use reflective/metacognitive journaling strategies?
- Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners by Ron Ritchart, Mark Church, and Karin Morrison
- Reflective Teaching, Reflective Learning: How to Develop Critically Engaged Readers, Writers, and Speakers edited by Thomas M. McCann, Larry R. Johannessen, Elizabeth Kahn, Peter Smagorinsky, and Michael W. Smith
