It's amazing how motivating using colored paper, pens and supplies could be when trying to entice students to write well-developed essays. In order to meet the graduation requirements, students must be able to write two well thought out essays on various historical topics. Essay writing is a daunting task for many of my students. My students often come to our school with low level reading and writing skills. However, I've come to find that the use of color in the classroom and allowing them to be creative with colored paper and pens for the essay writing has been very motivational. By allowing the students to be creative it motivates them to come to class more often. When they walk into the room it feels inviting. Also, knowing that the colors and creativity that surround them were created by them. This gives the students a sense of ownership and creates confidence.
