A shout out to my author-friend Barry Lane who started a new blog as his New Year's Resolution too. Barry's Blog is called 1000 Things To Write About.
One of my workshop's Seven Elements of a Differentiated Writing Lesson is giving students choice in two areas: in writing topics and in steps of the writing process. As anyone who studies differentiated instruction knows, choice is a powerful motivator to get more buy-in, especially from those reluctant writers.
Barry Lane is a wise man. I've always thought so. My favorite title from this author is 51 Wacky We-Search Reports. Do any of you have a favorite title? Share it!
