As I read your journal entries this morning, you helped me think about why writing is important for our students. Then, I was on Facebook and I saw this great love letter from a father to his daughters about how they shouldn’t accept the definition of beauty that fashion magazines will try to sell them.
The letter made me think about how we might help our students learn to “talk back” to society through writing.
I have one of these stories to share. If someone in the class goes first, I’ll share my story in the next comment! 🙂
