About the Author

We Belong in History includes writing by former Poet Laureate William Stafford, Oregons middle and secondary school students, and two experienced Oregon teachers: Erin Fox Ocón, and Robin Scialaba—who have worked intensely with the William Stafford archives at Lewis and Clark College to develop hands-on writing curricula that encourage appreciation of William Staffords work, and allow students to develop their own habits, skills, and voices as writers.
