Over the mid-winter recess I asked my students to sketch out their at-home writing space. Further, if they didn’t have an at-home writing space, I asked them to create one. They came back from vacation with sketches of what they created, which was fascinating. However, the most fascinating was one of the boys in my class who forgot to sketch it out, but boasted to me about the space he created. I was so taken by what he said, that I decided to share some of what he told me with you.
Honestly, I didn’t need a sketch after he told me all of this. Can’t you totally envision what he created just through his words?!!?
This assignment was inspired by Session 12 of Calkins and Cruz’s Book on Writing Fiction.
