The Benefits of Taking Students Outside to Inspire Writing

The Benefits of Taking Students Outside to Inspire Writing | Homework Helpers | Scoop.it

The following quote is one of the first things my eighth-grade students see when they walk into their classroom in September: We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
-- T.S. Eliot
