Teacher Tip

Writers Block
You will encounter students who, out of fear, undeveloped skills, boredom, disbelief, stubbornness, or weariness – will be unwilling or unable to write. When kids won't write or think they can't, it is usually because they haven't been romanced. When they're stuck during writing go back and collect more ideas, read more examples, gather more words. Spend several writing sessions JUST on the motivation and collection stages of writing.
From : If You're Trying to Teach Kids How to Write, You've Gotta Have This Book!
Marjorie Frank.
Incentive Publications. 1979.
