Ideas for Teachers from Teachers How do you teach young writers to carefully select interesting details from their own lives?
Example Blurb: Amelia--the main character in Amelia's Notebook (by Marissa Moss)--isn't a real person, but she seems like she could be. Amelia writes about her feelings and about her everyday experiences so well that she inspires students (my own neice included) to want to keep a notebook of personal stories and personal feelings. Before playing the feeling game, share some of Amelia's stories from her first journal, or from the dozen or so sequel journals that now exist.
