Using Writing to Disrupt Hot Moments - Saturday, February 4th, 9:00 - 10:15 a.m. (PST)

A "Hot moment" is a sudden eruption of tension or conflict in the classroom. What can you do when a comment has been made or reaction observed that causes heat in the classroom? How might you handle such a moment? How can you use it as an opportunity to advance student learning? In this highly interactive workshop with CSUN Writing Project Associate Director Traci Dennis, participants will develop strategies to work through the feelings of apprehension that sometimes take over during hot moments in the classroom. Classroom scenarios will be examined and participants will practice responding to them with the goal of becoming better equipped to effectively respond to hot moments in the classroom when they arise.
