Here’s what in did in preparation for and on Thursday (10/27):
-Dr. Benko explained that there was no lesson plan for today because all hell broke loose in her life (Catherine’s school had a two hour delay, oh no!).
What do you think good writing is?
Do you read or write on your own/for your own purposes?
How do you decide what you’ll write about? Where do your ideas come from?
What is the hardest part about writing for you?
5 minutes for icebreaking
13 minutes for common questions
15 minutes for “you decide”/get to know them questions (turn in hard copy of the questions you ask in order you think you might ask them!)
7 minutes for writing – you choose the prompt
-We ended class with some reminders about going into the school – MAKE SURE YOU’RE PREPARED! This was the most important take away, and to be the most polite versions of ourselves when we walk in the door (Dr. Benko has zero tolerance for students who walk into schools and act like what we think of when we think of college students); if you don’t have a Ball State ID, wear a visitor’s badge.
