#SOLSC22: 23

Today is Day 23 of the Slice of Life Story Challenge.

As I started writing this post, I wondered if I needed a chart to mark similarities and differences between the honorees for this March blog series. I quickly discovered MANY similarities.

Blogs? Check

Presents at NCTE? Check

Have personally presented with her? Check

Numerous zoom sessions? Check

An author featured on #G2great? Check

So many ideas were swirling in my brain, but I had already decided on “Supporting Writing” as my focus.

Today’s “Thank You” goes to an author who shares similar thoughts about students leading their own writing seminars for their fellow students. We’ve tweeted about this often. We promote student independence as much as possible.

Current books:

Available later in March, 2022 . . .

What questions do you have about writing? What writing do you support? What writing do you do yourself?

  1. Thank you for sharing this.

    1. You are welcome! My post does not feel as coherent as I thought it was before I fell asleep last night. Hmmm. Late night posting is perhaps not my forte!

  2. We definitely need to give students more freedom to run things on their own. It gives them a whole new perspective on things. It also puts us in the role of facilitator rather than instructor.

    1. Facilitator … YES!
      Setting the conditions for students to LEAD!

  3. Yay! Melanie!! I love reading these and trying to see how quickly I can guess the person. My own version of Wordle! Thank you.

    1. You are welcome. I envisioned them as a cross between vocab development and a riddle for “Guess who today’s ‘Thankful’ person is?”

  4. excellent post in many ways! And top notch resources!

    1. Thanks, Tim. Trying to stay on track!
