a writer's notebook page to start a creative idea about punctuation or parts of speech

The writing of author Robin Pulver is currently inspiring student writers to develop create ideas about punctuation or parts of speech or grammatical concepts. Join us in teaching (and adapting) this on-line lesson and sharing your students' work.

You can publish up to three of your students' edited and finished stories at this page.

Use these samples to inspire your student writers! Discussing the strengths of published student samples before, while, and after using this on-line assignment is important. If your students are engaged in trait- or skill-inspired discussions about any of the samples we've posted here, they will produce better writing, especially if you help them take their writing all the way through the writing process.

Thank you, those who share their students' writing with us.


Additional Student Samples Being Sought:
Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

WritingFix is currently seeking additional student samples from this writing assignment that can be featured in this space. Submitted student work must show evidence of revision, editing, and the final draft must be typed and sent through e-mail. Teachers: if you can help us obtain one, two or three student samples, along with a digital photo of the student(s) and a signed permission slips, we will send you a complimentary copy of one of the Northern Nevada Writing Project's print publications.

To have us consider your students' writing for inclusion on this page, you must post the writing to our Ning page dedicated to this lesson. Click here to access that page. You must first be a member of the Writing Lesson of the Month Network in order to post.


Teachers: We're looking for photographs of students' original notebook pages and the longer pieces of writing they inspired. We want to publish these side-by-side on this page!

You can post both photos and writing at our posting blog page for this lesson.

Be the first to help us publish a student with this lesson, and we will send you TWO free resources (instead of just one!) for your classroom.
