Teachers will have increased opportunities for professional collaboration in their schools and also for intra-campus relationships with like-minded colleagues. Outreach to professional communities (agents, publishers, writers, media) will encourage interaction between experts and students – a powerful encounter that students will remember. There are opportunities for intra-discipline teaching across the curriculum and increased contact time with engaged and interested students resulting in an increasingly healthy environment for all.
For English teachers, the benefits will come with the understanding of story elements that are necessary for students to grasp as they write their novels. Students will learn from doing rather than passively listening to instruction.
