Abstract

My personal desire to become a better writing teacher led me to focus my research and paper on Writer's Workshop and writing conferences. Throughout my own education I was never taught how powerful writing can be. During my childhood and part of my adult life I did not enjoy writing. I wanted more for my students I wanted them to fall in love with their own stories. In order to answer my capstone question I implemented four weeks of individual conferencing into my fourth grade classroom. Through the research within my classroom I discovered that writing conferences fit well into my fourth grade Writer's Workshop. I was able to meet the specific needs of the individual students. My challenge now is to make time to schedule more conferences.
