One of the things I miss not being in the classroom is teaching writing. I LOVE teaching writing! My favorite tool to use was a 4-Square graphic organizer. There is a book on this process you can buy from Amazon. The resource below is based on this book. It is a simple and easy way to organize for a writing assignment. Once the kids learn the process, you will see a dramatic improvment in what they produce.
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
