Faye Peitzman, Ph.D., Director

(310) 825-6990

After five years of full-time teaching and part-time studying in New York, in 1980 Faye Peitzman joined the UCLA faculty.  During her years at UCLA, she has taught writing to undergraduates, English methods and language acquisition to pre-service secondary candidates and guided first-year teachers in the writing of their masters inquiry. The majority of her work, however, revolves around the UCLA Writing Project where she delights in collaborating with practicing K-University teachers, together figuring out  how to best reach the unique and various students in everyone’s classroom. From the beginning of her teaching, Faye has focused on English learners. In 1991 she initiated the With Different Eyes Conference, offered annually the first Saturday in November, and co-authored and co-edited the text with the same name. Over the past several years, Faye has focused on sharing strategies for engaging students in “high-stakes, low-stakes everyday writing.”  Amazing what happens when students engage in this ritual and routine!
