On a bright July morning in a windowless conference room in a Manhattan bookstore, several dozen elementary school teachers were learning how to create worksheets that would help children learn to write. Judith C. Hochman, founder of an organization called the Writing Revolution, displayed examples of student work.
To begin, students will create an image or symbol to describe an essay. There are no right or wrong answers, but students will need to support their choice in symbolism or images. As they create and share their images, they will discuss what they liked about the others, what theirs represented, and what is missing. They will be hunting for key words such as introduction, conclusion, topic sentences, thesis, and sentence type. After watching the video, they should fill out the graphic organizers attached to each video.
