Eastern Virginia Writing Project '11 Presentation

Thanks, EVWP, for inviting me back to teach.   Below is a list of resources that I used today.   Several items have corresponding Blog entries for added information.   Most of these products can be found on   Laura Robb's publisher is Scholastic if you need to seek out another source.

Thanks also for your patience.   I know I didn't schedule enough time for us to complete all of the writing activities, but hopefully you got a feel for where we were going with the assignments and found something that you can use in your classroom.   Best wishes!
