Bucket Manyweather

According to Forecasting Agencies, Generation Z, who were born from the mid-90’s to 
the early 2000’s are more likely to view gender as a spectrum and identify outside of the male
female binary. Colleges and Universities are beginning to reflect the diversity of gender through

Hold Steady In The Wind: Reclaiming The Writing Workshop, Sheryl A. Lain Ms.

The Montana English Journal

Abstract of Article:

This article, rooted in the knowledge of pioneer researchers and practitioners, urges teachers to hold on to their writing workshop, because this classroom method not only promotes student voice and choice, but also achieves the fundamental aim of the education reform movement: to foster student success. As students become better writers, their test scores improve. The writing workshop offers students the opportunity to explore their own voices, to write all kinds of modes of writing, and to experience some autonomy, so important if they are to persist in the hard work of learning.
