NaNoWriMo: Seeing my students in a new light
Students CAN write. When you believe it, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. We just need to give them the right conditions to make it so.
While students were typing their own stories, I was inspired to write this poem:
A NaNoWriMo Poem
The room is silent
the hypnotizing click of keyboards
as stories begin to emerge
from grey matter.
The classroom is rife
The motivation is palpable
as students rise to the occasion
and bear their souls
to a blank screen.
