Lizbeth Bryant writes and teaches about writing with a focus on how we learn
to write and the best ways to teach writing. Dr. Bryant creates classroom
spaces that support the literacy development of students from all backgrounds. She employs a critical pedagogy with the use of collaborative groups, portfolio assessment, grade contracts, reading and writing workshops, student/teacher conferences, self-reflection, and publication opportunities.
