DROP EVERYTHING AND WRITE

Please remember that for 15 minutes during breakfast ALL students in ALL contents should be writing. We are providing you with prompts, but you are free to use your own. The purpose is to get students comfortable getting their ideas on paper and in a routine of sharing their written work. Please make time for some share-outs!


We would love feedback on how this is going and how we can make it better!
