Three more writing posters for my teacher resource expo…

Writing Jodi Picoult cant Edit blank page

I’ve added three new–freely downloadable–classroom writing posters to my Sail the Seven C’s Teacher Expo .

** Here is a short tour of the Expo and its current collection of resources. [More are being added every week.]

A couple of ways to use the quotes…

  • Print out and project onto the whiteboard, but block out key words or a phrase, such as, in the example below, ‘self-doubt’. Let your students fill in the blank.

  • Pose the question, “Have you ever felt the surge of momentum like the faucet Louis L’Amour refers to?

  • Say to your students: “Let’s talk about the blank page. Does anyone have any strategies to get past that uncomfortable moment…minute…hour?”

How does respected ESL teacher Larry Ferlazzo use photos for instruction?

Here is a quote from his resource-filled blog:

http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/

“My personal favorite is using photos using the Picture Word Inductive Model. As I described briefly in my recent New York Times guest post, and in my book, it’s an “inductive learning process where students first brainstorm twenty words related to a picture, then put those words into categories and add new ones that fit those categories. Next, they complete a “cloze” (or fill-in-the-blank) activity with sentences about the picture which are then put into categories of their own. They convert those sentence categories into paragraphs, and, finally, arrange the paragraphs into essays.”
