Fred Hamel ’85 has published Choice and Agency in the Writing Workshop: Developing Engaged Writers, Grades 4–6, through Teachers College Press. The book explains what happened when he and a fourth-grade teacher decided to create a weekly writing workshop that allowed students greater autonomy than is typical in schools. The book is “an observational, reflective study about paying attention to the range of things kids do to make acts of writing accessible and meaningful.” Hamel is a professor in the School of Education at University of Puget Sound.
