9 Rights Of Every Writer_Chapter 6
Writing comes from who we are, modeling must begin with sharing ourselves and what interests us - rather than asking students, "What interests you?" Instead of interrogating them right off the bat, let's put ourselves on the spot. Let them see who we are first, and how that translates into what we write. (p. 81).
Writing is most authentic when it represents our real lived experiences - from the exciting to the absolutely mundane. For our last blog post let's delve into the type of topics that make us such unique writers.
Please list at least five topics that you could consider writing during the Summer Institute. You can either provide 5 keywords, phrases or sentences that represent areas of interest that interest YOU! Consider this quality "think time" towards writing your first piece that is due next Tuesday morning (remember to bring six copies for your Writing Response Group too!).
