  1. Hmmmm…I am interested in trying more of the collaborating and writing some shared writing together…I use this model in reading, why not a little more in writing?


  2. Wow…just stopped by for my daily fix of Two Writing Teachers and was delighted to see a link to “Notice It, Practice It, Try It.” Thanks for the linky love and for spelling my name correctly. 🙂
