Today’s students may be the “writingest” generation ever! But how do they know when emoticons and texting abbreviations are all right and when standard English is required? It’s still important to “Teach with a capital T” and the ten-minute minilesson is one of the most powerful tools we have, whether we’re working on narratives, research reports or persuasive texts. In this session, we’ll look at some samples of student writing and share many lesson ideas ranging from content to writer’s craft to conventions in a range of writing text forms.
