Things I learned through the Middle Tennessee Writing Project

  • I am a writer.

  • I am a professional.

  • I can learn and share valuable lessons by spending time around other writers/teachers.


How this impacted me as an educator and tutor

  • I embraced the title of author/wrier.

  • I learned to articulate WHY what I was doing worked and WHAT the research said about my methodology.

  • I prioritized time with other educators.


The challenges of a high school writing center

  • Modern high schools are test-focused.

    • Lack of autonomy in curriculums

    • Always a “right” answer/format/approach

    • Writers’ Folders

Installing my NWP principles in my tutors—You are a professional!

  • Read scholarly articles so they have research to back up their approaches.

  • Use the lingo—HOCs and LOCs, Writer-Focues, etc.

  • Tutors as consultant to teachers and classroom visitor.


Installing my NWP principles in my tutors—You gain the most from learning from and sharing with each other!

  • Metanarrative discussions as a way of understanding other peoples’ writing process

  • Lots of conversations about their own writing experiences

    • Each part of the process:

      • How we approach it…

      • What we are thinking/doing while we write…

      • How we receive help at that stage…
