Response to Post 1
Originally I requested the "Memoirs" book but was added to Hidden Gems. I am looking forward to reading and discussing this book with my group because I have never specifically taught writing before! I was fortunate to teach Social Studies for the past seven years and after an unexpected layoff, I came back to Eastern to complete my Language Arts endorsement. This coming school year I will be teaching 6th Grade Language Arts for the first time. I am both excited and nervous and my hope is that participating in the Writing Project and this book study will help me become a successful teacher of writing.
