This Activity's Title:

The Wacky
"I will not..." Chalkboard

pretending any person, place, or thing could go to school...and get in trouble for misbehaving

This wacky activity was created by NNWP Teacher Consultant Corbett Harrison.

This original summarizing activity was inspired by Barry Lane's awesome book, 51 Wacky We-Search Reports. Barry's fifty-one writing formats in his book teach students how to summarize (not plagiarize) facts from readings or from class notes. The book also encourages humor in the classroom, and using it will help you build a community among your student writers. If you don't own this book, but like the assignment on this page, we strongly recommend you purchase a copy.
