Veteran teacher and author Colleen Cruz has seen it all and done it all in the writing classroom—and she’s got something to admit:  this is hard work.  Real hard.  In The Unstoppable Writing Teacher she takes on the common concerns, struggles, and roadblocks that we all face in writing instruction and helps us engage in the process of problem solving each one. 

From dealing with writing workshop skeptics to working with students both gifted and challenged, and of course combating that eternal barrier—lack of time—Colleen offers tried-and-true strategies to address and overcome obstacles. 

For the struggles unique to you, she includes a “Name Your Monster” section that helps you identify your own individual roadblocks and even offers sustainable support through her blog, colleencruz.com.  “We can’t solve all the problems we’re faced with in writing instruction,” Colleen promises, “but we can choose how to respond to them.  And our responses will make all the difference.”
