Duane R. Greenly ’72, president and CEO of Ames True Temper, the largest supplier of landscaping products in the U.S., is fond of saying that “preparation and perspiration beats inspiration.” Greenly returned to Bloomsburg University recently to share what he’s learned from 30 years in business. As part of his presentation—similar to the advice he gives during in-house training sessions at Ames — he offered his 12 Commandments of Business.

I’m trying to train my kids to use their heart maps when they need writing inspiration, so I keep my heart map by my easel and refer to it during every minilesson prior to writing. I like to pretend…VERY dramatically…that I have NOTHING to write about. The kids are quick to remind me that I can use my heart map for inspiration! They’re all, “DUH, Mrs. Carroll!!!” HA!

I love to teach writing. But few of my students ever came to me loving to write. I knew that I had to ease them into the idea of process writing and spending more than ten minutes on one piece of writing. What we know from research is that personal narrative is the easiest form of writing for our students.

CLASSIC FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS QUIZ...I feel like the kids need this at this time of the year!My 4th grade teacher did this when I was in school!!!!!!
Following Directions test hahaha I used to love/hate these!! I'd always fall for it. Another idea is to make it extra credit in the directions if a quiz or test. (Put your initials next to number 8 for 1 extra credit point) Teaches them to ALWAYS read directions
CLASSIC FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS QUIZ...I feel like the kids need this at this time of the year! Rewrite in TL?
CLASSIC FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS QUIZ...My 4th grade teacher did something similar to us because no one actually read fully through the directions to anything. I remember it clearly - very interesting to see how quickly we caught on.
