Writer's Notebooks

My students need 120 writer's notebooks for...writing!

My Students

There's something timeless about those black-and-white composition notebooks!

Being a school that is economically diverse, some students are able to purchase their own school supplies, while others are not.

So as to lessen the anxiety in some of my students, I would like to start off the school year providing each one with a writer's notebook.

My Project

I am trying to revamp the entire way I teach writing so as to provide more authentic writing experiences. So many of my students declare they "suck at writing" but I firmly believe they are too young to know whether they suck at it or not. And writing is something that someone CAN improve in...with regular PRACTICE and feedback! I envision my class being a workshop for writing apprentices, and having one portable place writers can keep their thoughts and ideas is crucial. We will probably go through multiple notebooks in a year, but I would like to start off with just one.

Writing is often called the "Neglected 'R'" and students simply need to do more of it!

These writer's notebooks will help in this quest to turn my reluctant writers into more confident ones who can access their voice and express their thoughts. I believe in the power of the notebook!
