This interactive session will focus on creating meaningful literary content through the use of collaborative writing practices. Participants in the session will learn how to teach crowd sourced novel and book writing, a new genre of writing that involves and energizes entire classrooms in the writing process. Participants will learn the nuances and secrets of creating a collaborative novel with their students. The "magic" of collaborative writing reaps the benefits of: enhanced student literacy, enhanced student understanding and appreciation of grammar, enhanced understanding of story structure and a deeper appreciation for their classmates. The session facilitator will take participants through the step by step process of creating a successful classroom novel. Perfect session for literacy teachers as well as school and district administrators who would like to encourage writing in the classroom.  Bring in a childhood memory!
