Power Hour

 

boys

pageEvery quarter I have a new creative writing Power Hour and this semester I have 7th grade boys. I am loving this group-they are interested, engaged and determined to write well. I know from my reading (and from years of experience) that boys tend to respond positively to competition so I’m not going to lie, sometimes I throw a Jolly Rancher to the student who comes up with the best piece of descriptive writing that day. Today everyone got a Jolly Rancher; we had some great stories. I wish you could hear how quiet it is in the library when they are all concentrating. We share the writing with the group with everyone listening and offering positive or helpful comments. Great job, guys!
