Teacher’s Talk: Be a Writer – Day 3

Wednesday’s session kicked off with the students writing poetry. Apparently, many people feel Wednesday is a long day, and this fact has led to a type of poetry known as enuegs or complaint poems. They are 13 lines long and serve as a creative outlet for whatever bugs us at the time. Other activities included: time in the lab to type, smiley face tricks, quick thinking questions, poetry from Hormone Jungle, and reading Last Book in the Universe. What a great group of talented writers! It is simply amazing to see their creativity, their high level vocabulary, and their mastery of grammar rules. Impressive!
