Growing Writing Moves Through Yoga Mat Student-Guides

My students need yoga mats that can be transformed into essay preparation "steps."

My Students

My students live just outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Our community that has developed quickly in recent years and beautifully blends a rural history with suburban growth. For this reason, my students come from diverse backgrounds and have interests that span the agriculture and outdoorsmanship of our country setting and the culture and arts of our city.

While our suburban neighborhoods are middle class, our school district's funding is one of the lowest (per pupil) in the state, and my classroom budget reflects that -- leaving little left after construction paper and tissues are purchased.

I hope my proposal here allows for my students to be supported in an "extra" way that I cannot manage to accomplish with my small classroom budget.

My Project

My sophomore writing students spend too much time seated behind their computer screens. I'd like to receive six yoga mats and, with the help of a Sharpie and/or some paint, transform the mats into move-through essay "steps." While such mats already exist for young students, no such products are made for high school students. I plan, therefore, to make my own. I will decorate both sides of the mats with planning prompts so that the students can literally and physically move through their compositions in groups or on their own.

These mats-turned-guides will allow my students to avoid staying still in chairs and will allow me to engage their writers' brains in a creative, intentional manner.
