Into the Classroom
First Steps A Shared Path Different Audiences Different Purposes
Usage and Mechanics Providing Feedback on Student Writing Learning from Professional Writers Writing in the 21st Century
Tell me how you would use an assignment like this in your classroom?

Susie: I think that have, my students don't have a lot of experience writing personal essays and I would like to have them try topics from different angles, seeing it from somebody else. How does somebody see you?

. . . .

Judith: How would you, what kind of assignment would you make that would result in a mixed genre?

Lori: I think maybe giving the kids a choice of the genres that they've experienced throughout the course of this semester and just asking them to stick to one theme or one point in their life or something that they're exploring and, you know, maybe offer them the opportunity to do pick writing it in two or three genres.

What do you think? You can offer your ideas, or respond to others that have been posted, by visiting Channel-Talk archives.
