Classroom SOLSC for Students: Day 13 of 31

Hello and welcome back to the Classroom Slice of Life Challenge!

Teachers often think of writing as something that is done for an audience and for a particular purpose (such as inform, entertain, or persuade other people). Often we teach kids that this is why people write. However, there is also writing that writers do just for ourselves, not because someone else will be reading, and not for any purpose that can be named easily.

You don’t have to be a famous author, or published in a book or on the internet to be a writer. Take it from one of my all time favorites, Junot Diaz:

  1. If you haven’t yet read the Essential Information post, then please click here to read it now.
  2. Don’t forget to keep your students’ identities anonymous for their protection.
  3. 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.(Click here for more information on how to do “round up” all your student slices.)
  4. Only post the link to your students’ slices of life here. Do not post the link to your personal slice of life stories here.
  5. Remember that when you comment on most blogs for the first time (including Two Writing Teachers), the first comment may need to be moderated by the blog owner before it appears. You should be using the  same username/email throughout the challenge – this will help your  comments should appear instantly in the future.
  6. Any questions, please contact one of us.
    • If your last name begins with the letters A – F, please email questions to Deb, DebFrazier4 {at} gmail {dot} com
    • If your last name begins with the letters G – L, please email questions to Beth, beth [at] elizabethmoore [dot] work
    • If your last name begins with the letters M- R please email questions to Kathleen, Mrs.Sokolowski {at} gmail {dot} com
    • If your last name begins with the letters S – Z, please email questions to Lanny, Lanny.Ball {at} gmail {dot} com

Finally, we invite you to grab the Classroom SOLSC button and Blogging Alongside My Students badge if you haven’t already, and use them on your blog. (Spanish versions coming soon!)
