Carl Anderson, one of the co-founders of ONLINE CAMPS INTERNATIONAL is a consultant known around the world as the expert on how to work one-to-one with writers in kindergarten through 12th grade. For nearly two decades, teachers have turned to his bestselling book, How’s It Going? A Practical Guide to Conferring with Student Writers, to learn how to have powerful conversations with students about their writing. Carl is also the author of Assessing Writers, Strategic Writing Conferences, and A Teacher’s Guide to Writing Conferences. Teachers relish the chance to improve how they confer with young writers by watching Carl do so, and by getting his feedback after he watches them confer. In his years teaching elementary and middle school, Carl worked in many settings – urban, small town, and suburban, from the Bronx, to Bardstown, Kentucky, where he was Teacher of the Year, to Northbrook, Illinois. Carl lives in Brooklyn with his family. He enjoys sailing, cooking, playing his guitar, coaching Little League baseball and serving on the board of SFX Youth Sports.
