Thank you to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Tara, Beth, Anna, Kathleen & Deb for this amazing platform to write and share writing! What a wonderful community you've created! I'm honored to be part of it. Join us at Two Writing Teachers.
One reason I love social media is the inspiration that's shared. A couple of days ago I was scrolling through Instagram when I saw something interesting posted by @Kevinmenglish.
I was immediately intrigued. My mind started working and wondering how my students could make their own RIGHTS. Today we discussed the rights we have as Americans...freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to vote. Then I asked them, "What rights do you have as readers?" Lists began in notebooks. Conversations started. We shared our best rights...
One student asked, "Will we be making our own constitution?" And another yelled out, "A proclamation!" YES! YES! YES! Once we complete our rights as readers...on to our rights as writers.
