I was SO lucky to have an amazing teacher in high school that taught me how to do this. I honestly am depressed at the quality of writing my college students turn in to me. I think I may teach them this as well.
Repin: "This is one of my now-favorite sites for Writer's Workshop ideas! Mini lessons, genre units (complete with publication and celebration!!), writer's notebook setup (binderized!), and more! Uh-mazing!"
Writing objectives. How to use a semicolon. This teacher's blog is amazing. I saw so many ideas for high school English class ideas for writing objectives for instance no one can write the word said in class for a week.
