A message to all members of Writing Lesson of the Month NetworkIf you haven't checked out WritingFix in a while, be sure to notice that we have all sorts of new opportunities for student writers to be published and celebrated on-line. As teachers who've been publishing their students have told us, being featured on a national website is a great motivator for students to authentically go through the writing process and take it seriously.
We've just expanded our annual digital photo competition this year (http://writingfix.com/
Writing about another's photographs--we've been saying this all year with our Writer's Notebook Project--is a great activity for students keeping writer's notebooks.
Keep 'em writing!
