Writing Workshop: I remember (I don't remember)

0.00

This writing exercise can be used in a number of different ways.

 It’s valuable as a ten-minute warm up, as a way for students to add to their Ideas Bank. Paragraph pieces are great for learning editing skills. Shorter pieces allow students to experiment with style and voice.

The writing exercises included in these notes can also lead students towards a longer personal essay.

If the class is studying a novel, this exercise can also guide a student towards a creative text-based response.

In these notes you’ll find a series of exercises and explanations that relate to the writing activity I remember (I don’t remember). Feel free to make copies, or use in any way that helps.

This writing exercise can be used in a number of different ways.

 It’s valuable as a ten-minute warm up. Ideally, in order to have story ideas when they need them, students would add one thing to their ideas bank every lesson. I’m not suggesting anything longer than a word or a line to remind them of an idea that’s arrived because of the class content. (Perhaps you’ve debated an issue, perhaps you’ve done this exercise, perhaps you’ve discussed fights with siblings–the student only has to write: brother/fight/over room.)

The exercise can be extended beyond a warm up. The exercises below lead the students towards a longer personal piece. Paragraph pieces are great for learning editing skills. Shorter pieces allow students to experiment with style and voice.

If you’re studying a class novel, this exercise can guide a student towards a creative text-based response.
