I am a professional/teaching book nerd. I, like many of you out there, I'm sure, did not have any classes on teaching writing. I do not feel at all strong in my teaching of writing. My very good friend and mentor let me borrow Writing Essentials. I am halfway through this book, and it has only been 2 days. It is easy to read and packed full of real classroom ideas. Please, if you haven't read this book and you're in need of a bit of influence in the writing department, CHECK THIS OUT! I promise you, you'll love it!
Also- my classroom ceiling is getting fixed...I've been told, so classroom pictures will be posted sometime this week!
