A Writing Wonderland Wednesday #NYCWPSummer17

5. What are your Aha! moments? We searched into moments of our teaching, conversations with colleagues or administration, professional development and readings and student work. After brainstorming our Aha! moments, sharing them, and then exploding into writing, we reflected on how important it is to write down all these moments as they happen, but the struggle is real at the end of a long school day. Julie had the great idea to start professional development time with some writing—Whaaaaaaat? Meaningful time to think and reflect during PD?? Genius! =)

4. Blackout Poetry is awesome! Even after the timer went off, we couldn’t stop working! Not only did we personally enjoy them, we saw so many ways of how we could use blackout poetry in the classroom—whether to have students focus on themes in a text, as an exercise of revising and editing, to visualize pauses and space, to highlight the delicacy of choice, or even just to show that mistakes are ok. Just black them out and let that take you into another direction!

3. We ran a marathon today! A Writing Marathon! We walked and we wrote and we sweated and we wrote some more. It was exhausting (in a good way of course), but so rewarding in the different ways we were able to experience writing and in being able to explore new spaces on campus. It made us wonder where in our schools and our communities we could write a marathon with our kids. Also, something Christy said during one of our share breaks that I loved: “Don’t apologize for making us feel something.” Yes! More feels please!

2. We ended the day with our writing groups. It’s been so encouraging to have people next to me as we struggled through our writing together. This is where I really see how different the process is for everyone and how beautiful it is that we can be more eyes and ears for each other during it. Saara and I walked to the train talking about how we wish we had more time with our writing group. Now that it’s over, two weeks feels too short!

1. That teacher struggle at the end of the day in six-word memoirs:

Just write 15 minutes a day.
or
Sit and stare at the wall.



May we fight the struggle and all write, write, write tonight for our share tomorrow!
