Make Writing Real Membership (beta)

an online membership site for high school teachers who are ready to teach writing more authentically in the 21st century classroom.

I am crazy-passionate about teaching high school, but I'm also crazy-passionate about rethinking *the way* we teach high school. I freaking love being an educator, and I've learned a heck of a lot through my professional experiences and opportunities...

But #truth, I've had to un-learn a lot, too...that adorable little teaching philosophy I drummed up for job interviews some fifteen years ago just doesn't cut it in today's classrooms. And if I think I'm going to teach my students the same way I was taught back in my own high school heyday, well...that's not going to move the ol' academic needle forward either, y'all.

But I'm cool with that. I'm down to learn something new. And I'd love for you to pioneer these new heights with me...

There is SO much room for improvement in our field, yet it's super easy for us to get caught up in the confines of a comfortable curriculum...the kind that's easy to teach and easier to measure.

So in a system that's 100+ years old (yet virtually unchanged), I'm on a m i s s i o n to 'think different' because times, they are a-changin', with our without our professional consent.

Specifically, I'm all up in your digital space to create and share updated ways for teaching writing, so high school ELA teachers can meet local and national standards while also cultivating what matters MOST for today’s 21st century learners and tomorrow’s innovative leaders. Make Writing Real is an online membership designed to accomplish just that. Each month, you'll get access to fresh pedagogy and updated practices to help you level-up writing instruction for the very people who matter most to us and our future: our students.

It's time to go rogue, and get real, yo...

You in?
