CLASSROOM SOLSC FOR STUDENTS: DAY 26 OF 31

Welcome to Day 26 of the 4th Annual Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge!

If your students are writing for the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge, this is where you can post the link to their writing.

Samuel Beckett once wrote:

James Joyce was a synthesizer, trying to bring in as much as he could. I am an analyzer, trying to leave out as much as I can. 

Today as you write, consider: Are you a synthesizer or an analyzer? Are you the kind of writer who strives to capture every detail, to make your writing come alive with description? Or are you the kind of writer who favors simplicity, who aims to strip away all but the essential?

Honor the kind of writer you are, and aim to make your writing the best it can be, in whatever style you choose to write.

Happy Slicing!

Reminders:

  1. If you haven’t read the Essential Information post, then please click here to read it now before you post the link to your students’ slice of life stories. Don’t forget to keep your students’ identities anonymous for their protection.
  2.  If your students are slicing from their personal blogs, then you should link their blog posts together using your classroom or personal blog. Then, share the permalink to the location of the “round up” of student slices. (Click here for more information on how to do this.) Individual students CANNOT link here directly. Students who are under 18 must have an adult linking for them. Any student links left without an adult link will be deleted.
  3. Only post the link to your students’ slices of life here. Do not post the link to your personal slice of life stories here. Go to the daily call for individual slice of life stories to post your personal slice.
  4. If this is the first comment you’ve left on Two Writing Teachers, then we will have to moderate your comment. We will be checking throughout the day in order to get your links up for the community as soon as possible. As long as you use the same username/email to log in going forward, your comments should appear instantly in the future.
