Teach Like Everyone’s Listening


The format is simple. I will fling a writing lesson at my students and see what happens.  Sometimes nothing but a giant concrete egg will happen. Sometimes amazing, shimmery things with wings will happen. But whatever happens, I will post a few of my students’ pieces here along with my lesson plan.

Fellow teachers, I hope you find something here you might try even as the hounds of standardized testing stand baying at your door.  Throw them a bone, shut the door, and turn your kids on to the greatest test of all – their imagination against a pristine, white sheet of paper.  Let stories rule the day.
