[Channel-talkhswriters] Workshop 3 Video Discussion

What strategies that you saw demonstrated in the video would you like to adopt for use in your own classroom?

I feel that the exercise where you give the students the choice of their magazine to write for. Then place them in the role of interviewer and article writer. This affords students the opportunity to hear a variety of tones and techniques for a variety of audiences and purposes. An article in Rolling Stone interviewing Mick Jagger will have a completely different tone and purpose than an article for Focus on the Family magazine interviewing James Dobson. Students will enjoy the role-playing fun. I might even give them a "real world" assignment to write an article for a magazine of their choice--to actually submit for publication.
