Student Writer Instructions:
You're going to write something original today, but you're going to borrow the idea from David Wisniewski's awesome book, The Secret Knowledge of Grown-ups.
Click on the first button below to choose a real rule. These are rules NOT found in The Secret Knowledge of Grown-ups, so you get to write about an ORIGINAL rule.
Next click on the second button to find a possible grown-up reason for the rule.
Lastly click on the third button to choose the real reason. Fill in the blanks with your own ideas, if necessary.
When you have an idea for an original piece of writing, use David Wisnieski's format and write a section that could appear in Wisnieski's book. Remember to choose descriptions and words that will bring your rule alive!
