Cognitive psychologists aren't so sure

Tracee Orman's insight:

An interesting exploration of the connection between handwriting and academic success. Yes, it does seem that kids who hand write do better in school, overall. 

It makes me wonder how many people like the "feel" of handwriting in their journal, as opposed to simply typing out a journal. I, myself, still like the feeling of writing out my emotional state. What about you?

This is a handy post. I plan on introducing student blogging to my new year 7 class and showing them examples is a great way to let them see just what is possible.

Where will "Mockingjay: Part 1" End?
Tracee Orman's insight:

Have a classroom discussion about where "Mockingjay: Part 1" will end. It will be a good refresher for your students discussing different plot points and analyzing the structure of the text.
