Teacher Comics: Writer’s notebooks
This journal entry was meant to get everyone thinking about the conflict in Romeo and Juliet and I think it worked! If you’re a high school English teacher and you’re not using writer’s notebooks… you should. Although it’s a LOT of reading and grading on the teacher’s part, getting kids to write is one of the more important things you can have students doing.
Sometimes I’m very tempted to use all of my students’ writer’s notebooks for comics. There’s some really clever, brilliant stuff I’d love to tackle. It’s something I’d like to consider for next school year, perhaps.
