Writing has been on my mind more during this month, especially the writing my students are doing. It has been a struggle at times with some disappointment in lack of effort. But other times it has been a complete joy and has opened up quieter students and given me insights I might not have had without this project.
This morning I stumbled across this quote from Judy Willis on Edutopia:
"Writing can increase both personal relevance and confidence. Personal relevance comes when students can write for creativity and personal expression." Wow!
