Meditation and The Art of Writing

Meditation and The Art of Writing | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

I want to tell you about an invaluable writing asset.

 

It’s become a non-negotiable element of my writing process, and I hope it becomes the same for you.

 

Writing is hard work. It’s not hard like electrical engineering (a chapter in my past life), which was a mind-numbing, sleep-depriving, hair-pulling kind of hard.

 

Writing is more a sweet torture, soreness-post-crazy-workout kind of hard.

 

You know the routine: The words get stuck. The ideas get jammed. The mind gets cluttered, and you get discouraged.

Two Reflective Teachers: Book Creator and Resistant Writers

Two Reflective Teachers: Book Creator and Resistant Writers | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

A special education teacher reflects on Book Creator and how it motivates students who are resistant writers.  Here is her story:

 

"As a Special Education teacher of upper elementary grades, I have several students who are resistant writers. This app has amazing potential to motivate them to write more since the finished product is beautiful, accessible, intuitive, and reflective of their efforts.

 

I have been using this app with one of my students with intellectual disabilities and what an incredible tool! We took pictures of this student making various emotional faces and then helped her draft a repetition book. She loved being able to record herself reading the pages and willingly practiced and practiced her Frye words and her fluency, without even realizing that she was doing it. She is also happily practicing pronunciation and sentence structure, skills that she would sometimes prefer to ignore!"

 

Why UDL?  Multiple Means of Expression

 

Thank you Melanie for telling your story.
