Check out Quora, all. This is indeed an excellent exercise and I agree with Dennis O'Connor - would make a wonderful online icebreaker for a digital classroom. Exciting!

6-Traits Resources: Word Choice: The J. Peterman Way

6-Traits Resources: Word Choice: The J. Peterman Way | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

The J. Peterman Catalog is real and online! http://www.jpeterman.com/

 

 

What a great way to teach word choice and voice! 

 

This topic was suggested during a discussion on Word Choice in my Teaching and Assessing Writing with the 6-Traits online class.

 

I had some fun running down these resources. I'm not sure how they might play for the current generation of kids in the seats who may not be Seinfeld fans. Not many will know who J.Peterman is. That's why I tried so hard to find the right video example of word choice and voice!

First Efforts at Written Conversations Strategies: Write-Around Text on Text

First Efforts at Written Conversations Strategies:  Write-Around Text on Text | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it
One of the variations of written conversations that Jen and I really liked was the write-around, a strategy in which “Small groups of kids write and exchange notes about a curricular topic for several rounds—maybe 5 to 15 minutes of sustained writing–and then they burst into out-loud talk that’s rooted in their extended written rehearsals” (Daniels 155).

A Year of Reading: Poetry Friday: Digital Mentor Texts for Poetry Writing | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

Tabatha shared several centos that she had found while reading THE GREAT GATSBY. A cento is a poem created with the words of another author. You might have missed that she followed up on Saturday with this digital cento -- a poem created by editing a video of a commencement speech by Steve Jobs.
