Allison & Rebekah

BookPortraits0049Allison Marchetti  and Rebekah O’Dell  believe in the power of choice, authenticity, and students’ voices in the reading and writing classroom.

Traveling the country to work with teachers and students provides constant inspiration as they help educators do the hard-and-tranformative work of teaching real writing.  In both public and independent schools, they have taught middle and high school students at all levels — from inclusion to AP and IB classes.

They are the founders of Moving Writers and the authors of Writing With Mentors (Heinemann 2015) and Beyond Literary Analysis (Heinemann, January 2018).BookPortraits0058
