Another lesson learned from the kids who write with me....
Making writing isn’t just about the making or the writing. It’s about giving whatever you can as you go.

Use screencasting such as Explain Everything or Draw and Tell as a means for students to not only show what they learned, but HOW they learned it. #ettipad #qfat

I'll begin exploring transmedia storytelling with middle and high school writers at the WNY Young Writer's Studio next weekend. Here, you'll find examples and some resources to begin your own adventure. This changes everything about writing.
Interested in exploring transmedia storytelling? This post includes resources and an invitation to connect with a writing teacher who is just beginning.

When adults steal the work of others, it's called plagiarism. When young writers do this, I try to treat it as a developmental phase. Stealing is okay, I often tell them, but stealing isn't simple. Kids need to be taught how to steal with integrity. Some thoughts on this, and a page from my sketchbook here. I shared this one with middle and high school writers at the WNY Young Writer's Studio last month, and kids really seemed to appreciate.
Writers must be taught how to steal with integrity. Creative theft is okay, but doing it well isn't simple.
