Just spent the morning with four of Mrs. Schultz’s 8th grade classes talking about story structure. Maybe not their favorite subject but as I explained to at least one class, they can’t get away from it, whether it’s for a book they are writing, a class paper in high school or college or a work proposal when they are out of school and in the working world. Being able to have people understand what you’re writing and even entertaining them on top of it is a skill worth getting down and may not be as hard as it seems 🙂
The kids listened well, didn’t fall asleep (which was nice), and had some good questions.
You’re doing a good job, Mrs. Schultz! Thanks for inviting me into your classroom!
