This Steelworkers Write video also includes:
"You write because you need to communicate to the world your place in it." Many don't see themselves as writers, don't think they have anything to write about. Here's a video featuring three steelworkers who took part in a writer's workshop and learned they had much to say.
- The video models that we all have stories to tell, stories that only we can tell
- The writing process is modeled by the speakers' comments
- Consider publishing the stories produced by your class
- Some learners may find it difficult, at first, to identify with the three workers featured in the video; consider beginning with a discussion of class members' preconceptions of writers
