Journal writing

For students reluctant to write, I have found that short DAILY writing times help to overcome resistance and frustration in not knowing how to start.  Using a structured, pre-writing plan helps also.  For some students, each assignment is like learning another foreign method of writing.  These students often write in simple sentences and generate a sentence or two, seldom reaching a half-page of writing.  For these students, I have found a simple format with similar prompts and topics of interest have helped in getting students to write more.  If this describes your child, check out our Wisdom Seekers Student Journal.  This journal has been extremely helpful in helping my students develop a routine habit of writing and gave opportunities to expand and revise the most interesting essays
