Day 70 of 84 Days of 84 Ribbons: Career Day
Tomorrow is Career Day at Cedar Valley Community School. I’ve been invited to join a panel for a second year to speak to writing and being an author. I’ve decided to bring a poster with a skeleton to remind the students that writing needs a framework (skeleton) to give a story shape. My handout will share the other stages of organizing for writing: the skin (problem) and clothing (details). It’s a simple but memorable graphic that I hope will stick with the kids.
If you’d like the details and a copy of my handout, send me a note via a comment to this post and I’ll send it along. It also includes a word search. (The teacher in me just won’t leave my brain in peace!)
