Foster Freedom in Writer’s Workshop

By Marypat Mahoney of Just Add Students

Giving students choice on what they write about and the mode in

which it’s written puts the power back into students’ hands.

Not only that, but in the real world — our students will be

writing letters of complaint, business proposals, notes of condolence,

emails to explain or convince, blog posts to explain opinions…

the list goes on. So, how do we do that?

Stars & Stripes

By Deann Marin, of Socrates Lantern

When I think about July 4th, I think about our American Flag and what it represents.

I asked my class what this day means to them. A young boy stated, “It’s when you get to see fireworks.

This is one of the responses I expected, so I asked why do we have fireworks?

He just shrugged his shoulders. Another student responded and said,

“To celebrate our Independence from England.” Great answer I told him.
