Many years ago Tom asked an audience of children, “How many people have ever sat in front of a piece of paper and not known what to write?” To his amazement, everyone raised a hand. Since then Tom has devoted much of his energy to researching, developing and improving strategies that will help all children feel comfortable with their writing. During this entertaining and highly interactive workshop, you will sample techniques for generating writing. These techniques can be adapted for use with all grades and all levels of ability. This workshop can be of any length and for an audience of any size. Tom has worked with audiences up to 1,000. Lively interactive exercises and extensive audience participation highlight this program.
