Making Writing Fun

Are you tired of teaching writing with work sheets? Are your students tired of you teaching writing with work sheets? Has writing become a chore for your students? Are they reluctant to engage in writing? Are you a ‘Grammar Nazi’? Writing can and should be enjoyable, and this session will introduce some fun and engaging writing projects.

This session will guide you through a writing project that uses movies to teach sentence structure skills. These writing projects vary from using only a 10-20 minute movie clip to write a non-fiction paragraph that answers a question, to watching an entire movie and selecting a scene to novelize. During this session we will examine the ‘guts’ of writing which will include learning about: independent clauses, dependent clauses, simple, compound, complex and compound-complex sentences. WAIT! As boring as this might sound, it can be fun and enjoyable. Trust me - Give me a chance! I promise your students will learn and enjoy these writing projects.
