Had my classes writing 6-word memoirs this week. In addition to writing they are drawing pictures on little art canvas panels 6″X6″ to publish their writing their memoirs.

All of the panels are going on the bulletin board in the library. They complain having to do this, but will all look for their panels when they are put up. You may think I teach at an elementary school of first to third graders, but I actually teach 9th thru 12th grade at a juvenile detention facility.

They have come alive with this assignment and are producing some very nice work. I may publish some of them later on this blog.

A colleague and I have published student work on a blog at http://www.writeyourtruth2.blogspot.com and our main site is http://www.writeyoutruth.blogspot.com . We give the kids a chance to express themselves, publish their writing and to read other kids writing without disclosing their identity.

Always looking for new ideas…so if you read this and have an idea or comment…please respond.
