…With a Pen in My Hand

Play With Your Words Writing PromptsThis week we are working on reading strategies–circling keywords, marking the text, and writing in the margins.

As the students and I discussed why these strategies are useful, I realized, it’s not just writer’s who think better with a pen in their hands, but anyone who reads, seeking to understand.

So much for my theory that thinking best with pen in hand is one of the qualities that make me a writer. I am humbled. I am human. I am in good company!
