Keith Sanzen

Rhode Island Writing Project

Keith Sanzen, a teacher-consultant for the Rhode Island Writing Project, proudly counts himself among the ranks of odd individuals who enjoy teaching middle school students. He currently teachers seventh and eighth English at Scituate Middle School, where he serves as the Gryphon Team leader and mentor coordinator. Keith is a regular presenter at the RIWP Spring Conference and has a specialized focus in "alternative texts," including multimedia and graphic novels, to equip struggling students with strong literacy practices. Keith enjoys examining a wider context of literacy in which students "read the world" in a critical fashion. In addition to being a member of the RIWP Executive Board, Keith also co-facilitates Presenters' Collaborative Network and the RIWP Literature Institute.
