Nan as Avatar

For teachers enrolled in on-line Oregon Writing Project Institutes, Nan has taken the role of avatar. To model a process that engrosses students, conveys skills, and produces admirable personal narratives, Nan leads the teachers through an interactive workshop they can replicate with their students. Instructors in Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, as well as in the U.S., simultaneously participate. (Scheduling a reasonable time of day for everyone is logistically difficult!)
