I presented at the Capital Area Writing Project’s WordFest tonight. Just thought I’d share my presentation in this forum as well.
SESSION NAME: Well-Chosen Words About Slices of Real Life
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Help your students find the beauty in their everyday lives by opening up your notebook and sharing your own writing with them. In this section, we’ll write anecdotes, or short, well-written stories about our own lives. We’ll take time to confer with each other about our writing and will discuss ways to infuse this type of writing into the classroom or the writer’s notebook on a daily basis. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to share their work with their colleagues.
