November was a busy month with school visits. Here I am working with 5th graders as I presented my program, Nine Things You Should Know to Improve your NF Writing. I’ve shared this program with large groups of 7th graders, 4th graders and 5th graders this past month. This 5th grade class was preparing to work on a biography project in the coming weeks. After my power point presentation, we used a timed “Free-writing exercise” to brainstorm a myriad of possible approaches to use to find a unique angle for their subject. Here a student shares a list of questions she plans to research about the soccer player, Abby Wambach.
