Evidence of Learning

One of the best parts of a writing residency is when I ask students what they’ve learned about writing. Here’s a sampling from last month’s residency:

  • “I’ve learned that writing is actually fun!”
  • “You don’t have to be perfect. You can always fix things later!”
  • “I learned that it can take a long time and you can make lots of drafts.”
  • “Reading books helps us to be better writers.”
  • “You can find mistakes when you read to the wall!”
  • “Erasers can be our best friend!”
  • “We can do the same things other authors do.”
  • “When we’re writing, we get to create things from our own imaginations!”

I wish I could convey the enthusiasm of these grade 1-4 students. Their words will have to suffice.
