Always Write: Name Games for the Writer's Notebook

Always Write: Name Games for the Writer's Notebook | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

 Corbett Harrison:

 

"This page contains two writer's notebook challenges based on creating interesting character names. My students certainly use very different writing techniques than I do, and what excites them to produce writing is often quite different from what excites me to write. There is nothing wrong with this, and just as I occasionally force them to try a technique that works for me in their writer's notebook, I also begrudgingly try out techniques in my own notebook that they claim work for them. It's the "give and take" that must be present in a true writer's workshop environment, and it's why scripted writing programs (I'm talking to you "Step Up to Writing" and Jane Shaffer) often squelch our students instead of inspiring them to write."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:
