GREAT Writing Ideas…But A Little Sad

My reading this morning has been all about writing: from the rules from writers at Brain Pickings to Pernille Ripp’s ideas for making writing fun again.

I was a little saddened, though, when Pernille mentioned that she could only afford 5 minutes of free writing and 10 minutes of free reading in her tight 45-minute class. I am grateful that I taught in the heady days before standardized testing when I could afford to have 30 minutes of free reading 3 days a week in my language arts class. Plus, doing all that reading meant that everyone had something they could write about, too.
