Chapter 5 through 8

When Gallagher describes plots as dominos I could imagine the great ways this example could help some of my students understand how authors use a plan to write and to prepare to write. I know that from the early grades through the fifth grade students I work with students could benefit from using this visual. I could also imagine it being used as a collaberative tool when writing poetry or constructing a short story.


I like your idea of using dominoes for tracing plot development. Many of my students think authors don't graph or plot their writing, but rather it just evolves.
There are some good strategies in chapter 5.

Hey, you used to write great, but the last several posts have been kinda boringĖ‡K I miss your great writings. Past few posts are just a bit out of track! come on!
