“ If the expectation of what we teach students about writing is changing, then so should our preparation. If we are to teach the craft of writing to students, and not just mechanics and spelling, most of us cannot rely solely on our own histories of writing instruction.”
~ Elizabeth Hale, Crafting Writers
Write at least three sentences about something fun you’ve done recently with your friends or family.
You MUST follow these two rules:
Indicate plurals using the marker guk.
Form past tense with the ending bo.
Example: On Saturday, I hadbo brunch with my friendguk, Heidi and Lydia.
“ When I was a child, editing meant error (bad, wrong, red pen and points off).”
~Lucy Calkins, The Art of Teaching Writing
“ Grammar is the skunk at the garden party of the language arts.”
