Daedalus Dinner: "Supporting a Reluctant Writer in Writing Workshop”

Building on his work in the book Choice and Agency in the Writing Workshop, Professor of Education Fred Hamel will narrate the experiences of Shawn, a 4th grade student navigating his own reluctance and disaffection with writing—in a writing workshop that sought to foster language experimentation, choice, and agency.

Four times each year, the Puget Sound Daedalus Society sponsors an evening of scholarship, debate, and dinner, at which colleagues can become familiar with each other’s areas of research and expertise. Established at Puget Sound in the 1970s, the Daedalus Dinner has become a popular mainstay of the campus calendar covering a wide range of programs and topics. Dinners are open to faculty and staff members, who are encouraged to bring interested students as their guests. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with wine and hors d’oeuvres, followed by the featured presentation, a catered buffet dinner, coffee, dessert, and discussion. Reservations are $15 per person, and are made a first-come, first-served basis. For more information or to make reservations, please call 253.879.3207.
