Welcome to the Reflections Series Education Resource

We continue to hear that people are using Reflections essays in classrooms to talk about place and narrative.  In response, we set up this blog about the writing process, craft, technique, and revision to support the teachers and writers using these stories.

This site has three categories:  craft, teaching, and revision. The “teaching” features essays that focus on using the books’ essays in the classroom.  The “craft” tab features essays on how writers approached the task of writing about place in a nonfiction personal narrative.  The “revision” essays discuss what it was like to work with an editor or other essays on the subject of revision and its importance and challenges.

Thank you for visiting our community of writers and educators!
