Based on my inquiry, I am excited to be teaching writing in the fall. I have many new ways for students to have an authentic audience to motivate them to write. One thing I learned is that students will care more about their final writing piece if they know that someone other than the teacher will be reading it. My favorite way that this will change my teaching is students will feel empowered to read and write better, and that is my ultimate goal. In addition students will develop the habits of mind while writing.
