Lessons That Change Writers, by Nancie Atwell

Ways to Conclude Persuasive Writing from Nancie Atwell's Lessons That Change Writers

Sometimes it's really nice to have a set of rules, like this Writer's Rule Book, but sometimes I just want to throw it all out the window!

    Yep, the rules can help or they can hinder- depending on how you use them.

    I don't like the rule that kids or animals can't die, it would make it more sad. Some of my favorite books have kids and animals both die.

  • Reilly Cousins

    There's plenty of books where animals or kids die; I could list at least 20. Heck in elementary school we read books where children died XD
