One of your first assignments will be to design and organize your WRITERS' NOTEBOOK. I have designed my own as an example. This book will be a VERY important part of our class this year, and it's therefore important that you take good care of it and always bring it to class. You're welcome to leave it in the classroom if you'd like, but many students like to take the notebooks home to be able to write freely outside of school. We will engage in what some have called SWT (Sacred Writing Time) at the beginning of most Writing Workshop classes, and we'll also use our notebooks to free write, brainstorm, and take notes on good writing techniques.
