Dear Followers of the Blog:
Among the things I do, teaching AVID is one of my favorites.
My class shines like a diamond — unless I ask them to write.
I notice a dramatic change in behavior (it turns sour) when I ask them to write.
We had an honest talk today about this. I insisted on honesty.
80% of my AVID class says they find writing boring.
Writing is the only academic pursuit that did not cause me pain.
My appeal to the followers of this blog is to give me some ideas.
If you did not enjoy writing in school, what worked for you?
