always seek to understand what is appearing on the page,
to see it clearly,
to evaluate it clearly,
for clear thinking will produce clear writing."
Taken from A Writer Teaches Writing
Tomorrow and Tuesday I will be visiting teachers' classrooms at Jay Middle School as they model trait 1 - Ideas. As I reflect on what we will talk about, I keep running Murray's quote through my head.
6+1 does offer us the opportunity as teachers to share the writer's craft with our students always moving towards clarity of thought for our readers.
I know that our conversations tomorrow will be rich and the teachers and students will teach me a great deal.
Stay tuned. We will be posting lesson summaries right here for everyone to share and comment about.
See you soon - Darlene
